My Top Bag Picks For F/W 2010

Here are some of my favourites for Fall/Winter 2010:

First up, this Enamel minaudiere with logo detail by Fendi is my absolute favourite for F/W 2010. Though not usually a fan of anything in gold, I love the shape and colour combo. This hard-cased clutch just oozes sophistication.My other all-time favourite day bag is this “Rocco” mini duffel by Alexander Wang. I know that we saw this bag debut early this year, but I am still in love with the studded base that give the bag a sort of closet rocker chick vibe.

Bally’s Ponyhair Macy tote with snakeskin trims. I’m not usually a fan of Bally, but I must admit that these days, their designs target a much younger crowd. And yes, being an animal print fan, I’m glad that Animal Prints are BIG come F/W this year.
Yet another Animal print number has made it into my list. Actually, compared to the Bally bag above, I prefer this leopard print ponyhair Cabas by Celine. The zippers make the bag appear more unique compared to your regular animal print bags. Phoebe Philo is definitely doing a good job with Celine!!

I am a total Balenciaga junkie, so naturally a Balenciaga piece just HAD to make it into my “IT List” this upcoming F/W season. This is a new shape for the house. Called the papier tote, this piece is definitely more work-friendly compared to the other bags in their collection.
Ok, I have never been a fan of skulls (and I never will be), but what redeems this bag is its unusual shape with the foldover corners. And with the skulls I’m sure you all already can guess that this is an Alexander McQueen piece, called the skull-embossed “De Manta” tote in mock croc.
I have never been a fan of Dior’s New Lock Bag, but this F/W season’s version in hand-painted python tugged at my heartstrings.
For those of you who are just starting to get used to the idea of a bag with Exotic skins, this Christian Louboutin bag is for you. The python trims against an ivory-coloured background give the bag a funky yet somewhat muted look.
Devi Kroell, who started out with, and known for her line of jewel-embellished clutches has started venturing into other type of bags too. The metal corners cleverly break up the flap and the body of the bag. Without the corners, the bag’ll look a tad too flat. Pictured below is Devi Kroell’s new Nosferatu bi-toned textured leather bag.

Dries van Noten isn’t a brand that is usually more known for its RTW rather than its accessories. But then again, this unique take (and shape) on a shopper in croc was the reason why it made it into my list.

This black lacquer and printed ponyhair Latoya clutch by Jimmy Choo is almost architectural in terms of design.
Another Exotic skinned clutch, but this time, in a rare and unique tiger python skin and topaz embellishment. Clutch by Kara RossOk, so I know that I wasn’t exactly singing praises about Miu Miu’s F/W 2010 collection, but I just love the salmon and pastel colour combo on this patent bag.
