Foley + Corinna Fall 2010 Handbag Collection Preview

Foley + Corinna Fall 2010 Handbag Collection Preview

Last week I was invited to preview the Foley + Corinna Fall 2010 Handbag Collection in New York City. I jumped on the opportunity to see what's in store for this luxe handbag brand because, despite the fact that Foley + Corinna is not "budget", I've been a huge fan of their signature Mid-City Tote for years and someday hope to own one of my own. Le sigh. As you'll see from my pics, the Fall 2010 collection takes a dark turn as classic silhouettes are reinterpreted to include details like slashed leather and edgy metal hardware like chains, buckles and studs. The color palette was predominantly black save for a few faux snakeskin prints in beige or silver metallic. If you love seeing their bags in bright colors like magenta, red or camel, snag one in stores like Bloomingdale's or shopbop.com now because these colors will be sparse come fall. Prices range from about $200 to $550. Keep reading to see the complete collection!

These bags are hot. I love how big they are. A big bag is just what I need to justify taking half of my apartment with me on a daily basis. My eye is on that snakeskin one.

WOW. I'm drooling over the hardware-heavy bags, especially the strappy ones up top.

Oooh la love! I agree w/Sally - the hardware heavy ones are amazing. I own the black city tote and LOVE it. Only problem is that its so big, things get lost! BB, I think you deserve the splurge!!
