Off the Rack: LPLP Linea Pelle for Target Fall 2011 Handbags

The other day at Target I spotted about eleven new fall styles from the LPLP Linea Pelle handbag collection, and they're actually pretty good-lookin. My favorites included a stud detail cognac satchel, a zip front crossbody purse and both the black and purple versions of the tote with exterior pockets. Prices range from $14.99 to $29.99, and some bags were already marked down a bit. Overall, this is a much better collection than LPLP's disappointing debut spring line, thanks to a richer fall color palette of black, purple, cognac, brown and olive green. See more real-life pics after the jump (sorry for the poor quality, I thought I had forgotten my camera but it was hiding in the side pocket of my purse all along). Are you impressed with LPLP's fall styles?

These do look much nicer than the previous ones they had out. Might have to go check them out. Thanks for sharing!

I really like the purple bag. That seems like the perfect size for a carry-on for travel during the holidays! I'm going to have to go check it out, thanks for the pictures!

It's definitely an improvement, but I still feel like faux leather bags just look cheap unless you go with a higher end vegan line like Big Buddha. I would definitely consider the purple bag or the green perforated bag if they were on clearance. I love Target for clothes, belts, accessories, and the occasional pair of trendy shoes, but their bags--collaboration or not--always underwhelm me. However, I still have my Carlos Falchi for Target bags (I got them at 75% off) and use them a bit. I know that line got a lot of criticism, but I have enjoyed them.

Thanks for the pics and review, BB!

I think Big Buddha bags are so cute! But I own the last LP bag and it's actually really nice! I own quite a bit of higher end bags (LV, Gucci etc) and this bag is what I'm rockin right now!

I bought the real LP perforated bag this summer, and truth be told I saw the ones in Target a couple of weeks ago, and I like the Target version better. The leather was better than expected, and I liked the shape and size better than what I have.
But I need a new tote bag for the fall, so I will be checking out that cognac one. Great color!
