Trend Alert: The Doctor Is In
May 24, 2007
Think living vicariously through Meredith Greyâ€™s hectic life is the closest youâ€™ll ever come to being a doctor? Think again. This summer, free-form hobos and shapeless totes are being traded in for the classic structure of doctorâ€™s bags. And with hundreds of color and texture riffs on the standard satchel shape, thereâ€™s bound to be a doctorâ€™s bag that gets your heart rate going.
Nancy Gonzaelzâ€™s crocodile satchel in feisty fuchsia ($2,350 @ BergdorfGoodman.com) is a fab place to stash your stethoscope if youâ€™re ready to cause a stir. Zac Posenâ€™s Iconic Doctorâ€™s Bag ($1,400 @ NeimanMarcus.com) is an update on the classic, in dark leather with crisp white trim and sturdy gold hardware. And Calvin Klein “Jet Set” Framed Satchel ($225 @ Macys.com) is a light, white pick thatâ€™s more style than sterile.
Not making a surgeonâ€™s salary? Rafe for Targetâ€™s retro floral canvas duffle has all the space and structure of traditional doctorâ€™s bags for only $50. And Nine West’s Signs of Spring Doctor Satchel ($79 @ Endless.com) will leave you with enough left over to pay off some of those med school loans.
Here are some more doctorâ€™s bag finds to get you making house calls in no time:
