As Seen In: Marie Claire

What: The 10 most-wanted bags, according to Marie Claire (May 2006). Here’s what we think.

If you want a gorgeously chic oversize bag, the Coach Legacy is the way to go. It has tons of pockets and plenty of space, so we agree: It definitely is a must-have ($798). Find it at Coach.com. The Jimmy Choo Romona is a roomy hobo that fits practically everything. And it’s no slouch on the style front: Jimmy is presenting the bag with an upscale look. But there’s not much else to it ($1,450). Find it at BergdorfGoodman.com. Cute daytime clutches are hard to come by, so Miu Miu’s white one is a real find. It’s not just that it is the perfect spring/summer color; it’s also big enough to hold all your necessities for a day out ($630). Find it at Net-a-Porter.com.

The Gucci Python Peggy is classic in shape and style but has a glaring edge. The blindingly bright snakeskin (green or violet) is what makes this bag a standout ($3,695). Find it at NeimanMarcus.com and Gucci.com.

The Chloé Betty is a Neiman Marcus exclusive. I’ll just quote myself on this one: There’s something about the ultrasimplistic style and reliable functionality—four front pockets and a coin purse—that draws you to the Betty. It’s casual yet chic, a true modern classic. To spice it up, choose metallic pewter ($1,995). Find it at NeimanMarcus.com. It’s on preorder status, so get on the list now. Michael Kors' Desert bag is spacious and sturdy—not particularly thrilling, but a carry-all classic perfect for work ($995).

eLUXURY.com offers the Dior Gaucho, a new saddle bag that is so damn city-chic. Hanging from the strap is a Christian Dior “1947” medallion and key—it’s definitely the little things that count ($1,995). LV’s perforated bags remind us of golf gloves, but the holes in the Marc Jacobs Brigitte work—the bag kind of looks like a cute eyelet dress. But any other color than white is a no-go for spring ($1,295).

The more available—and less pricey—alternative is the calfskin version ($3,000), but it definitely pales in comparison to its reptilian counterpart. Find it at Polo.com.

The Bottega Veneta Python Cocker features BV’s intricate signature weavework done on exotic, luxe snakeskin. Oh, and a tortoiseshell strap. ’Nuff said ($5,380). Find it at Saks.com, where you can get FREE SHIPPING on orders over $150, from April 18th to May 5th.
