Fall is right around the corner and it’s time to shop for a new handbag. So, with a tinge of sadness, it is almost time to hang up my summer bag and make room for something else. Bright colors and light fabrics of summer are soon to be replaced with darker hues and rich leathers.
One of our favorite online boutiques, Clutch, sells the latest handbags by contemporary designers like Treesje, Rebecca Minkoff, Linea Pelle, Botkier, Kooba and more. Their new arrivals section has tons of bags perfect for fall.
Bonus! The lovely ladies at Clutch are kindly offering Skinnypurse.com readers 20% off all new merchandise when you use code ‘skinny’ at checkout. Note: Offer good until September 20th!!
Here are our top picks for Fall from Clutch:
Treesje Capri Messenger Bag in Wine, $695:
Even though my school days are over, the start of September has me reminiscing the start of a new school year – crisp books, new school supplies, a wardrobe of fall clothes, and of course, a new book bag. While I won’t be heading back to campus this Fall, I’ll be channeling that collegiate feeling with Treesje’s Capri bag.
Kooba Ricki in Brown, $595:
This bag has been calling my name. Supple leather and uber-chic styling are what we’ve come to expect from Kooba bags. The Ricki is fashioned from deep chocolate brown leather and brass buckle details. Slight distressing gives it a worn in look.
Linea Pelle Dylan Zip Tote in Purple, $495:
The Linea Pelle Dylan Zip Tote mixes fashion with function in a bag replete with zippered compartments. I’m already such a fan of this bag (I have it in green), but the deep purple will be perfect as temps drop in the city. As the mother of a toddler, I’m always carrying snacks, extra diapers, sippy cups, etc. and the Dylan does not disappoint when it comes to space.
Botkier Jetson Clutch in Peacock Blue, $325:
This little bag does double duty as it can be worn as a shoulder bag or used as a clutch. A deep blue nubby leather has a riveted outer pocket, that’s threaded with leather, giving this bag a slightly bohemian feel. Perfect for a night out.
So, if you are looking for a fall bag, be sure to check out Clutch. And if you find yourself in downtown Seattle, be sure to stop by.
