Classic Structured Bags
With all the changing trends, one style that continues to persevere is the ladylike structured shape. Some designers added a retro or bedazzled touch, while others kept the look modern.
Bagging the Unconventional

Saddlebags are Back
With such a focus on the 1970’s, it’s the perfect time for the saddlebag to be brought to the forefront. New designs include sumptuous suede, rich brown leather, and even snakeskin.
