Any woman who has tried to juggle strollers, babies, diaper bags, handbags and all of the multiple accessories that come with a baby knows that it is quite hard to pull off “chic” and “parental” at the same time. Longing for a purse that says “jet-setter” more than “carpool lane?” Then do it like Jessica Alba with Gerard Darel .
Darel has created some of the most sought after handbags in Hollywood and counts Angelina Jolie, Halle Berry, Eva Longoria, Cameron Diaz and Ashley Simpson Wentz as fans. He’s done it again this winter with Jessica’s new favorite, the "36 Hour" Midday Midnight Barcelona ($895), a gorgeous oversized leather bag that has tons of storage with outsize zipper pockets and inside compartments to keep things from slipping into the proverbial big purse black hole.
Whether you’re trying for mommy chic or just looking for a hot handbag to hold your life together, check out Gerard Darel’s bags. You might find just the bag to take you from midday to midnight.
