Luckily, we've found a nice selection of bags that take fashion, function and finance into consideration by designer labels Yiliy, LaLucca, Hammitt, and Oscar and Anna. Below, we've listed a couple of our favorites from each designer. Check out these awesome designers whose notoriety continues to increase as they continue to create wardrobe essentials.

Exclusive Interview: Clutch in their Natural Habitat

If brevity is the soul of wit, then it’s impressive that Clutch has kept their wits about them for so long. In direct defiance of brevity, the Maryland group has soldiered on now for two decades, letting the years age them like fine whiskey and fermenting their brand of hard rock in a blues-soul sourmash. Clutch’s early sound tapped the vitriol of the D.C. punk scene, but rather than railing against political machines, singer Neil Fallon’s lyrics rebelled against logic like an inflamed Zappa, barking about alien conspiracies and new world samurai. But despite their affinity towards distortion and rock clubs, their rhythmic alliance to hypnotic grooves rather than brazen riffs set them apart from their hard rock comrades.

Trend Alert: Stark White

Who says you can’t wear white after Labor Day? Not Viktor and Rolf.

Winter white is a chic way to express your style in the chilly months—accessorized with their shoes and handbags. Their knee-high, loose-fitting boots work well with a trench coat—however, let’s leave out the white face paint. We don’t want to get too swept away with the white theme. The suede, drapery clutch provides attention-grabbing detail, perfect with a tailored suit and simple stiletto. Go a little more edgy with their flocked alligator clutch. This will make for an eye-popping accessory with skinny jeans and the trendy white-collared shirt for fall. Be sure to add a little Winter Wonderland to your closet this fall, even if it is in small quantities.
