Be & D Studded Satchel...in pink!

new.jpgI've always had a thing for this bag, and now, since they've decided to make it pink, what I used to consider a little thing has suddenly turned into a much bigger thing! Adding a little extra pizzazz to the already glitzy appearance of the Studded Satchel, Be & D is really pouring on the glamour with it's new washed rose leather exterior. The bag also features cognac pebble-grain trim along with the usual square buckles and ID tag. In stock now at Neiman Marcus, the pink beauty sells for $895.

Be & D Leather Crawford Hobo

bed-crawford-hobo.gifI'm not quite sure what, but there's something very enticing about this bag. Made with smooth Italian deerskin in gorgeous white, the Be & D Leather Crawford Hobo has undoubtedly stolen my heart today. The bag's strap is detailed with studs and grommets and has large adjustable buckles, while the interior of the hobo is lined in suede. It measures 14 x 19 x 4 inches and sells for $1,180 at Saks. Too bad I have such a large problem with deerskin purses or I just might look into buying one of these. Ok, so its much more a money issue than the whole deer thing that's really standing in my way, but you get the idea.

Be & D Fur Shoulder Bag

be-&-D-fur.jpgIt's obvious that I have a real problem with designers using rabbit fur on their handbags, but I feel that in order to be a true handbag journalist (although I promise there is no such thing), I must at least report on such designers and their said ridiculous creations. Be & D, whom I've praised in the past for their rich leather designs and beautiful, exaggerated stud detailing, have evidentially decided to kill some bunnies. The Fur Shoulder Bag, available now from Bergdorf Goodman, has metallic bronze leather trim, tarnished golden hardware and is fashioned with... well you know what it's fashioned with. So now all you have to do is come up with $1,495 and a way to lose that guilty conscious and you'll be well on your way to bunny-covered handbag heaven! The saddest thing is that no matter how dreadful and horrible it all seems to me, I still can’t deny that this bag is down-right gorgeous. Darn you, Be & D!

Be & D Limited Edition Velvet Satchel

be-d-velvet.jpgNeiman Marcus calls it "Riveting—a luxurious, limited-edition velvet satchel with eye-catching hardware" and we at Purseuing (wait a minute... it's just me, isn't it?) happily agree. In gorgeous azure velvet, the Be & D bag is trimed in cognac leather and accented in the usual golden hardware and stud detail. The Limited Edition Satchel ($795) is available for preorder now and expected to ship by 11/07/2005.

Be & D Velvet Studded Satchel

be&d-velvet-studded-satchel.jpgFor the most part, I view Be & D bags as being pretty overpriced and underachieving, and although I continue to see them as a little "not worth it", I can't deny my extreme attraction for this plush, velvety version of their Studded Satchel. Featuring brown velvet with leather trim, the Velvet Studded Satchel has golden hardware and is covered in Be & D's customary studs. You can pre-order the bag now for $795 at Bergdorf Goodman. It's expected to ship October 7th.
