THE NEW BLACK: It's easy to get caught up in all the fun shades and textures popping out of handbag designers this year. From Chanel's red cocoon bag to Rebecca Minkoff's neon mini satchels, it's amazing you can see the basic black bag behind all that crazy color.
That is, unless you've got your eyes fixed on a bag as beautiful and timeless as the Michael Kors Skorpios Hobo. Fashioned from rich black leather, the tiny, vertical pleating gives the illusion of a bag drenched in khol, while the tasteful gold hardware add just enough classic glamour.
This is an investment piece that you won't soon put away, no matter the color à la mode.
