Rebecca Minkoff Spring/Summer 2012 Collection

Rebecca Minkoff is one of my favorite handbag designers right now. I love the shapes and textures she uses. I also love the prints and colors she puts together as well. She does design clothing and tech accessories as well, but I decided to focus my post on some of my favorites from her spring handbag line. All of these are available at Nordstrom, but you can find them places like Piperlime, Shopbop.com, Saks, Bloomingdales, etc. She is all over the place!

Her spring line consists of bring fun colors, mixed with her traditional snakeskin prints. I am obsessed with the line. See what your favorites are and be sure to pick one up! I got one of her bags last year; They are great quality and so fun to wear!

Desire Ostrich Embossed Satchel

Diamond Straw Tote

M.A.B. Mini Perforated Whipstitched Satchel

M.A.B. Mini Ostrich Embossed Bombe Satchel

Swing Ostrich Embossed Shoulder Bag

Swing Colorblock Shoulder Bag (My friend Cara just got this and it’s gorgeous in person. You can use it as two straps or it pulls through and can be used as a cross body bag.)

M.A.C. Shoulder Bag

I love her wallets. They are big enough to hold everything you need, but still flat so you can fit it in a normal sized bag. Plus, you can basically use it as a clutch on the weekends. Here are three options of different prints:

Passport Wallet

Cheetah Print Passport Wallet

Stripe Passport Wallet
