Stylists Weigh In on the 'It' Bags of 2011
Looking for the perfect spring pocketbook? StyleFind has it in the bag. The shopping site polled some of the country’s top stylists, asking for their thoughts on the must-have purses of 2011. Rachel Zoe protégé Brad Goreski chose the Louis Vuitton “Alma Nomade” satchel (above, $3,100) — “the color … is absolute perfection,” he says — plus a summery white Bottega Veneta fringe tote. Meanwhile, Emily Current and Meritt Elliott, who design the denim line Current/Elliott and style stars like Mandy Moore, went the colorful route, praising Jil Sander’s yellow leather “Market” tote (above, $895) and Proenza Schouler’s cross-body bag (above). “It’s a statement bag with charm and personality,” they explain of the latter. Conversely, Nicole Chavez, who’s dressed Rachel Bilson and Scarlett Johansson, is all about Celine’s dark and edgy zip-around shoulder bag (above). “It will never go out of style,” she shares.
