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.
