What: 'Rachele' leather tote
Why: This bag is in my opinion the right way of interpreting the color-block trend that is so predominant this season as the colors used are all subdued, rich, yet classic. You will never get bored of this bag as the creamy light-brown and nude colors mixed with the black are stapled colors in one's closet. I love the shape as it is the right size for any occasion. Beautiful workmanship and barely there yet ultra luxurious details make this bag a complete hit for me. To be honest, the complete Spring 2011 Bally collection is a major hit for me. Definitely my favorite this season. Totally worth checking Bally's website. (www.bally.com)

Who: Paul Smith
What: "Mini on location" printed canvas Duffle bag with leather trims
Why: This Duffle bag is so out there and totally out of my comfort zone, yet I find it so appealing and amazingly creative, innovative and cool. The print is so fresh, using the right colors, and the brown leather of the trims is the right color choice to complement the crazy print. Duffle bags are my favorite shapes for men. I find it so interesting that menswear industry has become so open to exploration and is not afraid to remain classic and dull. Love it!!!
