With Spring right around the corner, my focus inevitably starts to switch from how to keep warm with my cache of cashmere sweaters and leather gloves to a longing for a something smart and fresh for spring. Perhaps a chic little bag with a architectural twist. I've always loved the clean, modern lines of Swiss Design House Akris, so it was no surprise that I fell in love with their bag line.  The stunning trapezoidal-shaped Ai bag designed by Albert Kriemler is named from famous Race Horses with the beginning letter 'A': Ai, Amata and Alba. I'm putting all my money on the Ai handbag in the first!

 Love the blue for Spring!
Or maybe the quilted calfskin

Love. I can't choose between the red or the blue. How about both!!!

Love Akris - it's beautifully made and fits so well!! I vote for the blue - I think it would be wonderful with all the spring/summer colors!!

I like Akris but not a particular fan of these very angular looking shapes. Not my thing but do like the colors and the leathers are wonderful.

I love the structured bag they are doing with the hard handle and flap. They are Bergdorf's second best selling brand to Oscar de la R! Good call!x
