Jil Sander Market perforated Leather Bag: A Stand-Out Piece

Price: $1,440.00

Where to Buy: Net-A-Porter,

Bagopedia's Rating: 4 Bags (Out of 5)

Bagopedia's Comment: Compared to last fall/winter, Bagopedia enjoy viewing the bags of this spring/summer. The colors are bold and vibrant. Some people might find them too bright. 

This Jil Sander hobo really stands out. I love the HERMES-quality deer skin, the paisley patter, the laser cut, and the lipstick color. If you are not crazy about the neon colors but willing to try some colors, this is a great color to try. 

Hobo style bags are not Bagopedia's cup-of-tea, but I can see myself in this hobo with white-t and jeans.

GIVENCHY Birds of Paradise Tote: Carrying Paradise

Price: $1,120.00

Where to Buy: Bergdorf Goodman,

Bgopedia's Rating: 4 Bags (Out of 5)

Bagopedia's Comment: I think this tote is paradise (period). Simple. (I love something short but powerful). OK, maybe it isn't that simple. The price tag is hell. However, Givenchy makes very limited quantity. This tote will guarantee you getting a good status in Fashion or on the street.

PRADA 2012 S/S Pyramid Frame Bag: 60's looks are hot

Price: $2,995.00

Where to Buy: Neiman Marcus,

Who Carries it: January Jones,

Bagopedia's Rating: 4 Bags (Out of 5)

Bagopedia's Comment: As Mad Man Season 5 kicked off, the 60's looks are hotter than ever. Prada 2012 S/S collection features car details from the 60's and flames with bright colors. This Pyramid frame bag has a body of modern and a soul of the 60's. If zippers represent the freedom of women in the 80's, the frame would represent the 60's looks. As a woman of 2012, you can be both.

Bottega Veneta Duo Intrecciato Leather Bag

Bottega Veneta Duo Intrecciato Leather Shoulder Bag: A Tote-lly handbag

Price: $2,480.00

Where to Buy: Net-A-Porter,

Bagopedia's Rating: 4 Bags (Out of 5)

Bagopedia's Comment: Bagopedia loves totes. However sometimes totes can be a pain too. Bagopedia always can't find my cellphone inside my totes. It seems to me as soon as you put something inside your tote, they sink on the bottom of the ocean. Especially the linings are dark or in a dark place, then you try to find your cellphone or coin purses.

This tote effortlessly divides into two compartments. One side can be used for money, keys, papers and the other side can be used for little things. The color is 2012 S/S color, but Bagopedia thinks it is so neutral that can easily be used in the winters too. The bag doubtlessly tells you it is a BV bag that you spend too money on your bags. However, the price isn't so shocking for a BV bag. The handles can be pulled longer (Just like CHANEL bags) or shorter to carry as a shoulder bag or messenger. It is designed as a handbags with compartments as well as a tote design- open top for easy access to your stuff. Antique look hardware and light color suede lining are good to have.

Tory Burch Large Straw Tote 2012 SS: Choose the right tote

Price: $295.00

Where to Buy: Tory Burch Stores, Saks Fifth Avenue,

Bagopedia's Rating: 3 Bags (Out of 5)

Bagopedia's Comment: As you might be aware, the repeated small patterns are getting popular. You will be seeing a lot of those patterns coming out. The peak will be this fall and winter.

Unlike last fall/winter, the bags this spring/summer are really exciting. The patterns, the materials, the colors... just start to feel so light and airy.

This tote is something I will definitely think about. It is on the right track. I am not eager to purchase it because it is still early for this season. I know more and more like this will come out later this season.
