renegade luxury

Handbags adorned with grommets and/or studs are definitely in (take a look at the latest Saks Holiday catalogue). The young, wildly popular brand Be&D seems to be at the forefront of the trend with their studded leather bags that seem permanently attached (at least this month) to the arms of models, debs, and celebs. The label was started by Be Inthavong and Steve Dumain 15 months ago. I remember seeing a few Be&D "Crawford" hobos in the spring and summer, but now the expanding collection of bags seems to have reached an enviable, must-have status. And you don't have to settle for brown or black- each style is available in a range of colours...

I love the combination of butter soft Italian leather with edgy studs. It's like Amazon armour for the modern woman.

Another studded bag I am currently coveting is a black Moschino Nappa Bag:
