Woven Wonders of Spring/Summer 2013

Look at these beautiful bags! Some of the most iconic trends of this upcoming Spring 2013 season are jacquard and woven prints and textures.

The classic Fendi Peekaboo bag is reinvented in a woven style, available in orange and navy. Completely iconic, this slouchy bag is beautiful and fresh for the spring (but can definitely take you through the fall)! Definitely a head-turner in either color.

Louis Vuitton put out a bright, classy yet funky line of handbags and accessories. They revamped their Damier in a variety of bag styles--mostly smaller top-handle bags that are variations on the Speedy, some clutches, and small square luggage-style purses. The pieces in the cognac brown are my favorite; with the perfect outfit (this being my ultimate favorite), it is appears to be a delicate piece with a dose of practicality, too. It's certainly big enough for an iPad, magazines and your extra essentials.

Marc Jacobs additionally contributed to this spring trend with his Marc by Marc Jacobs Mini Marc'd & Check'd Printed Satchel. This particular style also comes in a larger size, if the Mini isn't your cup of tea. Other pieces in his SS13 collection are vaguely reminiscent of his work in his Marc Jacobs line and also in Louis Vuitton.

These are just a few examples of this skyrocketing spring trend. See any other designers invoking this trend? Post it below!

Louis Vuitton Damier Ebene Zippy Wallet Illustre

Perhaps the coolest accessory I found last fall was this beautiful limited edition Louis Vuitton Damier Ebene Zippy Wallet from the Fall 2011 collection.

Louis Vuitton Zippy Wallet Illustre

Its "Illustre" style is gorgeous with a set of travelers running to catch a train (not unlike Marc Jacobs' recent Fall/Winter 2012 runway show) that is inspired from an original 1909 sketch. Perhaps the best thing about this Zippy is the absolute POP you get when you open the wallet.

The brilliant lavender graces your eyes with its regal hues. Vuitton's Zippy wallet has eight credit card slots, a coin pouch and a few areas suitable for bank notes and receipts. The wallet is made of calf leather and is outfitted with elegant brass hardware. Truly practical and sophisticated, you're bound to have others ask about your wallet when checking out at a store!

What's your favorite 'pop' piece?
