Spring Is Here! (In Stores, At Least)-------
For warmer temperatures, you’ll have to wait a few months, and we wouldn’t advise attempting Aquilano.Rimondi’s short-shorts just yet. But Spring deliveries are already hitting major stores, and no time like the present to dive into the season’s best bags.
Over at Barneys, spring-y, pop-colored Intrecciato bags from Bottega Veneta are now sharing shelf space with new Proenza satchels and leopard-print (of course) Givenchy totes. Or try a quilted bag from 2010′s de facto designer of the year, Alber Elbaz. The one at left is from Lanvin’s “Happy” series—just the thing to chase away the wintry blues.
Happy Mini Pop bag, $1,390, available now at Barneys New York and www.barneys.com.
