Handbag Find: Get Knighted
October 9, 2007
Burberry has reason to celebrate this season. No, not because people are still nuts about their signature nova check, though that is certainly good news – for Burberry, at least. No, the fashion house is popping open the champagne this time because one of their latest handbags, the Knight Bag, is a big hit.
Luckily for the brains at Burberry the biker chic trend really caught on and all things leather, grommets and studs are H-O-T for fall. It also doesn’t hurt that this bag is really chic.
Now I’m not usually into the metal studs and spikes – totally not my style at all – but when I saw this bag I actually wished there was some way I could magically afford it. Alas, that wish didn’t come true, but it’s still nice to admire. Or find copycats. You can buy the Knight bag from the Burberry website and Neiman Marcus has beautiful burgundy clutch that looks like it’s from the same family. I've been checking out this studded alternative, though. It has the same spirit as the Knight bag, without being an exact replica. (No need to send out copyright goons on this bag's maker, Burberry.) Plus, it's a whole lot more affordable.
