The makers of Hype handbags know that fashionable young things have places to go and people to see — and that sometimes it all needs to happen on a budget. The line got its start in 2000, when their NYC in-house design team began crafting all-leather handbags and small leather goods that held their own against higher-end luxury pieces. Today, the line includes womenswear, too, with playful, edgy separates and dresses taking center stage. Hype has received frequent attention from style bibles <i>Lucky</i>, <i>Glamour</i> and <i>Marie Claire</i>.
Believe the hype: These trendy bags are just what every gal-on-the-go needs. Choose your perfect purse among these studded clutches, swinging hobos and double-shoulder satchels in distressed leather.
Forest green. Cherry red. Sky blue. Whatever your preference on the color wheel, this selection has a bevy of designer bags in every shade and shape. Sleek evening clutches make an appearance in every color of rainbow, from basic black and soft peach to hot pink and even purple snakeskin. Slouchy hobo bags come studded in green and blue, shiny in silver and classic in chocolate brown and tan.
Towering cage sandals, supple leather totes and chic pumps: This stunning selection is proof that a muted color palette doesn’t mean muted style. Turn up the volume with sleek envelope clutches in blush pink, mineral white or earth brown, or add texture to any ensemble with the perforated leather Roxy tote, featuring metallic leather throughout and a handwoven design. Or slip on the light gray Dalva sandal, a sexy five-inch platform embellished with metal accents.
The classics, with a few twists: basic black gets an upgrade in this selection of designer clutches, totes, satchels and shoulder bags. This sale includes evening options, like Katherine Kwei’s suede clutch adorned with hand-woven metallic leather knots, or Leonello Borghi’s metal-studded round clutch. Or stash your daily necessities — and then some — in a big tote like MS by Martine Sitbon’s distressed leather piece or kate spade's sleek crocodile-embossed style.
