Crazy Fashion Trend: Handbags

Every Fashion Week brings us new trends, some wearable, some not so much. My favorite are those little styling tricks that seem small at the time, but result in major trends within the fashion world and nowhere else. Last year it was coats worn as capes, arms out of the sleeves. This year, I'm predicting not only handbags carried as clutches, but handbags carried with one handle looped through the other like at Bottega Veneta's Fall 2011 show. Luckily you don't have to wait, Alexander Wang has a bag in stores right now, the Alpha Combo Shopper, built around that entire concept. Loop the long handle through the short for an over-the-shoulder bag, loop the short handle through the hole for a tote. Needless to say, I'm all for it.
