Handbag trends for Spring 2009 include dressed-up, grown-up handbags made from – of all things – nylon!
Prada and Kate Spade did nylon in the 90s, when the black nylon Prada backpack was everywhere. Then nylon faded from the scene as leathers, exotic skins, feathers, knits, and fabrics took a turn in the spotlight.
But nylon bags are back, and they are gorgeous. Not only that, they’re functional, sturdy, and lightweight.
An example is this Dooney & Bourke Medium Sac in orange:
Wayfarer Medium Sac – $195
Giraffe Large Sac – $395
Not only with the color look great with a classic white blouse and jeans combo, this bag is classy enough to be part of your work wardrobe, too. And if you’ve grown weary of tiny little clutches that are only big enough to hold a credit card and a lipstick, they you’ll appreciate this spring’s roomy nylon bags like this one. It includes a cell phone pocket and an inside key ring attachment. Handbags have become more than just an accessory, and the Dooney & Bourke Medium Sac can more than carry its weight as an integral part of your wardrobe.
