Dooney & Bourke Spring 2014 Satchels, Handbags, Totes, Accessories Part 1

zip top satchels-ALTO collection- in red. Camilla-$525 and a small Camilla $450
Jack Studios, NYC

The media preview of Dooney & Bourke's early Spring 2014 to Pre Fall-we categorize by delivering dates…was focused on quality (of course), and lots of summery options we feel really extends the occasions a customer would want to carry such a special handbag/tote.

The Alto group =  classic D&B exclusives- with butter smooth leather, subtle hardware accents and high end details like feet, adjustable straps, and a lined interior with thoughtful pockets/ compartments for personal items. Pictured-in a rich red, natural, and creamy off white color options.
Oriana $595 structured zipper satchel is a new look. LOVE.

Style options include several sizes of zip satchels, a roomy tote-shopper, cross body,  and a messenger bag.

Year round after Labor Day ok color!

natural tone works with just about every color or print just about

Ostrich-grained leather satchels-beautiful colors-including orange which we feel can work with all the neutral tone wardrobes we all have

A zippered satchel-in easy to travel with nylon with leather trim-or in solid leather- is a versatile item if one were only to need one shape (imagine!).  Roomy and professionally polished enough for work occasions-but not so big as to overwhelm nighttime wardrobes-whether dressy or jeans. Spring 2014 delivers many color options...

Sunset Yellow, Kelly Green

Aegean Blue, Bubblegum Pink
All weather leather-imo- the Dillen group would survive anything one can throw at it---an affordable leather collection from $98-to $398 for the larger satchels that can double as overnight bags.
quality is evident-durable leather-with smooth leather trims, contrast stitching. With interior pockets, key loop, handle and shoulder strap-satchel -in cobalt-many color options.

mini-barrel bag…white, dark cobalt with leather trim-very cute and big enough for smarpthone, keys, cards….
The Montecatini collection $500-$550 (available now in Autumnal tones) is Dooney & Bourke at its best-no doubt, for admirers of luxury leather goods. Saddle bags, slouches, and a diamond braided shopper with protective feet (above-top left)…with the eye-catching braided trim…set this grouping a carry-alls to rival higher priced labels. With a lined interior with all the pockets one would need-plus zippered, flap or magnetic closures so well placed- so as not to break the line of the sumptuous smooth leather.
Buckle slouch-three inside compartments, two inside zip pockets, one inside pocket, one cell phone pocket, lined-with an adjustable strap and magnetic closure.

Buckle slouch in a creamy white natural tone-three inside compartments, two inside zip pockets, one inside pocket, one cell phone pocket, lined-with an adjustable strap and magnetic closure.

Saddle bags have a flap closure

Accessories -the blingy kind-are a nice way to rev up one's arm party! Mix and match watches, all metal-and leather metal bracelets.

Watches-Madison and Darien metal Link ($198) …and Madison and Darien ($148) smooth or croco embossed straps-rather nicely weighted pieces featuring Japanese precision movements and an engraved signature DB crown. Available now

And newer styles...

PS: we did not see the probably very limited edition of coated canvas bags sporting NY Yankees™ logos---but as lifelong fans---we know we'd better scoop these up… cannot think of a better way to jog around the bases.
