The 20 Best Under-$600 Bags of Pre-Fall 2016
Even though we love designer bags (obviously), we're all big believers in the idea that shoppers don't need to spend four figures (or anywhere near it) in order to get a beautiful, well-made, expensive-looking bag that will serve them well for the season and beyond. The evidence on which we've based that belief is all around us: now's a great time to be in the market for a handbag that hits in the mid-three-figures or less.
Not only have stalwart contemporary brands like Coach, Marc Jacobs and MICHAEL Michael Korsall elevated their offerings in the past year, but the market is full of smaller brands--some of them very new and helmed by young, innovative designers--which have found a come with contemporary consumers who've long been neglected when it comes to sophisticated accessories.
