Handbags. You love them or you hate them. They can be a necessity, or they can be a bottomless pit of lost treasures. They can be a coveted piece that your favorite star is sporting, or they can be whimsical, colorful, and a hard-to-miss conversational piece. I prefer the latter. Women, and more and more men, rely on a trusty bag to carry around the trappings of this modern life. I seek out the non-traditional handbag...the one that elicits a gasp or gets an ooh or aah after it's strategically placed on a cocktail table. This collection is my ode to the twist on the conventional handbag. So go ahead and get a little chichi.
