While designing this year’s new collections, my thoughts automatically turned to the value we place on our handbags. Toting our essentials in a bustling environment with cell phone and coffee cup in hand, demands a functional, uncomplicated and durable handbag. Not to mention, of course, value for money. Our busy lives function best with handbags that offer easy access, casual styling in match-all tones, and will last many seasons. Gone are the days of having time to switch purses to match your outfit for the day. The question remains, though, how do you stay in style with all these practical considerations? Luckily, we have you covered, after all, style is the American West specialty. So go ahead, feast your eyes on this year’s many new collections…. Where function, along with the American West promise of a lifetime of durability, blend perfectly with classic elegance and up-to-the-minute styling.
