PurseBlog.com, the web’s most active fashion forum devoted to authentic designer handbags, has released their list of top picks for this year’s major spring trend: tie-dye bags. Contemporary and premium designers alike have incorporated the tie-dye trend into their spring 2010 lines, using an array of different techniques, fabrics and colors.
"This season’s tie-dye handbags are perfect for bringing an interesting refresh into your spring wardrobe,” said Meaghan Mahoney Dusil, Founder and Editor of PurseBlog. “With a variety of shapes, sizes and price points on the market, tie-dye has definitely become one of the trends we are seeing most frequently for spring.”
PurseBlog’s full review of this season’s nine best tie-dye handbags can be found at http://www.purseblog.com/spring-trend-tie-dye-bags/. Their top picks, which range in price from $195 to nearly $4,000, are as follows:
Lauren Merkin Diana Rainbow Clutch
Designed exclusively for ShopBop, this tie-dye clutch has glazed, snakeskin-print leather with a colorful and playful rainbow pattern.
Rebecca Minkoff Easy Rider Clutch
Featuring Bohemian-inspired tie-dye leather with studs and zipper accents on the outside, this clutch is one of the tie-dye options from Rebecca Minkoff’s Spring 2010 Collection.
Coach Embossed Exotic Ombre Large Charm Tote
From Coach’s new Charm collection, this tote features embossed leather with a deep gleaming ombre color that adds a colorful effect.
Katherine Kwei Donna Clutch
Known for using an ancient knotting technique, Katherine Kwei has recreated her Donna Clutch in a black and white tie-dye like pattern that leaves the bag looking like a smoky white/grey/black combination.
Be&D Garbo Satchel
The sumptuously soft calfskin is processed with a unique wash technique to create the tie-dye like effect, which is available in darker blue/black combinations and a light neutral treatment.
Donna Karan Eldridge
This version of the Eldridge, exclusive to NetAPorter, features pleated crease-print with black and white coloring.
Bottega Veneta Superlight Aquilone
A testament to Tomas Maier’s innovative brilliance, the Superlight Aquilone’s leather is given a unique treatment, creating a two-tone effect that shows varying shades of the color and white.
Jimmy Choo Robin
The Robin from Jimmy Choo was recreated in a colorful tie-dye leather on an exotic Elaphe snake bag, giving us an unstructured, Bohemian vibe.
Derek Lam Nadia Hobo
While some tie-dye bags show intense colors, the Derek Lam Nadia Hobo uses neutral hues and is so subtle in its execution that it is one of the best true tie-dye bags of the season.
