Fashion Top Five: Non-Leather Handbags Are Cheaper And Not Made Of Cow

January 14, 2009 by Rebekah

Leather handbags are expensive, and it’s annoying to get caught with one in a sudden downpour. Coated canvas and nylon handbags, however, are less expensive (usually – and we kind of think D&G is just being silly), lighter, and generally repel water. We’re not converting our whole handbag collection, but these stylish non-leather bags are definitely worth some consideration.

LeSportsac’s Dana Tote
($98) is sleek enough for work, but can easily double as a gym bag – it’s 18” x 21” and made of patent-finish nylon.

MAXX New York’s Monte Carlo Shopper ($145) is made of PVC, but doesn’t look fake-leather-y; it’s big and structured, easy to carry in-hand or over your shoulder.

This coated nylon shoulder bag ($39.50) comes with a Too Faced lip balm and little makeup case – quite the deal at under $40.

This sort-of-preppy coated canvas tote ($89) is perfect for work or weekend, and we love the contrasting color scheme.

This Matt & Nat bag ($220) is made of “vegan leather,” which obviously makes no sense, but it’s still exceedingly well-styled and expensive-looking for a non-leather bag.
