|Sellaio Collection-FIA $695 top pick….|
A Dooney& Bourke media preview is a highlight on any editorial calendar---!
Right off-we give two big thumbs up to adding some Fall 2014 color in our accessories wardrobe -bumping up the staple black or browns…for the muted and deeply vibrant jewel tones we saw…different interpretations of green (hunter, kelly, ivy, forest), blues (navy, denim midnight, sky) and grays (smoke, dark)...
Another noticeable continuation---less bling, more refined luxury handbags…that fantastically show off the quality of the materials.
Premium leather goods by this American company are a value, we think. It will be clear to D&Bs faithful as well as new customers ---that the selections pictured here ---are tops in quality and design. Plus-carry-alls -depending on selection-have high end trims and features: like interior cellphone and zipped pockets, sturdy lining, a key hook…and finishes like protective feet and enduring metal hardware...
Of special note-every Dooney&Bourke handbag is durable. It truly amazes us how much stuff we cram into our haulers by this label.
