Comment on this bag
For a fun, sporty take on summer, Cole Haan introduces the Nylon Duffel Bag from their Catherine Collection. The leather trimmed nylon bag comes in black and white and features a buckled web strap and side pockets. The duffel is lined in nylon and measures 6 x 8 x 5 inches, making it possibly the smallest duffel known to man, and probably the cutest too. Cole Haan sells the purse for $125.louis-vuitton-neverfull-bag-50
The Neverfull Bag 50 from Louis Vuitton combines a modern version of the original Neverfull Bag with the traditional feel of Louis Vuitton. The travel bag is made with fine Suhali goat leather and has brass hardware. The interior of the bag features striped, cotton lining which gets its inspiration from the original Louis trunks. The leather label on the outside of the bag says "Louis Vuitton Inventeur", and the Neverfull Bag measures an enormous 20 x 12 x 8 inches. The bag sells for $2420.gap-sporty-floral-weekender
The Gap Sporty Floral Weekender in mini blue floral totally caught my eye today (it was hard to miss it) as I was browsing Gap's website. The roomy bag comes complete with printed cotton trimmed in leather, and beautiful metal star studs. There's a large zipper opening and two front zipper pockets that also appear to be gigantic. Did I mention that this weekender is borderline mammoth-sized? Seriously, what an enormous bag! Perfect for short, mini-vacations when you just want to carry one bag, the Gap weekender is $54 and also comes in a multi-star pattern.dooney-bourke-marchesa-mini-duffel
The Dooney & Bourke Marchesa Mini Duffel is made of leather and includes a 4.5 inch handle drop. Measuring 10 x 3.75 x 5 inches, the bag sells for $225 and comes in seven different colors. As far as I am concerned, the Marchesa Collection could only be described with a big sigh of relief. Sorry to anyone who was digging the whole signature/really-young-looking handbag thing, but I will have to say I am glad to see Dooney & Bourke starting to get away from that stuff a bit. Now don't get me wrong, I like all the cutesy colors and girly patterns but enough is enough. When they came out with the Charm collection I wondered if I would ever be able to carry a Dooney again. Every rich 14 year old on the planet had one of those crazy things. No matter how much I tried, I just could not find it in me to like that bag. It reminded me too much of a serial killer's ransom note. The worst part was that Dooney was the serial killer and I felt like the victim. At any rate, as I was saying, I am happy to see D&B going with some leather and classic designs again. I have missed you Dooney, welcome back.j.jill-casual-leather-travel-bag
If I traveled, and if I had some place to go, and if I had the money to go to that place, I would definitely buy this bag and take it with me. The Casual Leather Travel Bag from J.Jill is made of plush nubuck and has leather trim. The $178 bag has nickel-plated hardware, pockets on the front and side, and an interior zip pocket and a few different compartments to tote along all your travel essentials. The shoulder strap is adjustable and lengthens up to 40 inches. Wait a minute. Did I just say 40 inches? That’s a long strap! Just for the sake of comparison, here are a few things that are 40 inches: A broomstick, the height of an oven, the arm of my loveseat, and third-graders. Don’t make me go on.ellington-hollister-duffel
My what a big, functional bag this is. On the outside of the Ellington Duffel alone it has a back zip pocket that runs the width of the bag and zip pockets on the side panels with leather flaps. The main compartment has a ton of different pockets too. There are leather handles and a removable shoulder strap with buckle detail. The Hollister is priced at $230, measures 15 x 21 x 10 inches, and comes in Khaki Canvas/Brown Vaquero.mulberry-roxy
I saw in Cosmopolitan magazine this month where lots of celebs including Kate Moss own this bag. The Leather Roxy is pretty pricey at about $1,100 US dollars but wow is it cool! I think that it has an "old english" appeal to it but the pockets and buckles give it an edgy feel. Shown here in Oak, the dimensions are 18.5 x 34 x 17cm.
