What are you getting your mom for Mother’s Day?
Bold, colorful prints are a big trend in handbags this fall. We love the bright, quirky designs from the Sakroots Artist Circle collection. From the rich blue and orange of the Lagoon True Love print to the pale background with bursts of yellow and red of Natural Peace, they evoke “the artist, musician and nature lover in all of us.”
San Francisco muralist Jetro Martinez based the Fall 2012 bambu print on the inspiring story of bamboo growth. A mother plant grows underground, has a surprising growth spurt in its fourth year and creates offshoots that multiply. It’s also flexible and agile enough to thrive even after storms.
The fall palette combines deep purple with contrasting pops of citrine and tangerine. Crochet trim and contrast stitching add a unique, hand-crafted feel to each piece. Show your artistic sensibility and stand out in a sea of dark fall bags with this playful print!

What colors would you pair with the purple bambu print for a fresh fall ensemble?
If darker colors for the darker months are getting you down, but bright bags seem all wrong for your turtleneck-and-trench ensembles, you’ll love the rich, saturated reds that were everywhere on this fall’s runways. With names like ox blood, wine, chili pepper, and salsa, these reds are vivid instead of bright, bold instead of breezy. They add depth and color play to looks that could otherwise take themselves too seriously.

There’s no need to start fall with styles that blend into the background. Punch up your wardrobe with a bag that draws second looks and starts conversations. We’ve picked the best ways to play with your handbag wardrobe this season.
Unique Details: This zip over satchel from Kathy Van Zeeland stands out from the crowd with whimsical zipper details and a silver giraffe print. With its intricate decorative beading and peacock feather motif, this Nina Mae Fully Beaded Peacock clutch combines upscale and quirky. The T Tahari Olivia tote steps up a simple shape with distinctive colorblocking and the curved lines of the front pocket.
Rich Colors: Betsey Johnson knows a thing or two about making statements, and her Neon Lights Jelly satchel says it all with a vibrant neon green. Brilliant scarlet dials up the drama for this Indio leather bucket from The Sak. On the other end of the color spectrum, bold blue hues take this BCBGMAXAZRIA Evening clutch from staple to stunner.
Fresh Silhouettes: We love the rounded shape and vertical front zipper pockets of the Vince Camuto Cristina hobo and the asymmetrical front flap of the Hobo Original Zara cross-body bag. The vegetable tanned Cavo tote from Patricia Nash is dressed up with delightfully unexpected cutouts and ruffles along the top edge for a fresh take on a classic.
Touchable Textures: What some designs use as a decoration, the Steve Madden Fringy Fringe hobo uses as a centerpiece. An unexpected panel of hair calf invites touch and adds an unexpected edge to the Brahmin Kensington Collection Taylor tote (and it’s only available at Dillard’s)! For turning heads and starting conversations, though, nothing beats the owlishly offbeat UGG Australia Foxley Flap shoulder bag, with its over-the-top textures, chain strap and antiqued brasstone hardware.

What handbag statement type fits your style best?
The Sakroots Artist Circle collection appeals to your inner flower child with an emphasis on vivid prints from fresh, hip designers. Their philosophy, “peace and harmony among all things,” shines clearly through both their bohemian style and their decision to support The Nature Conservancy’s Plant a Billion Trees campaign.
Here are our favorite features:
We love the colorful patterns Sakroots has commissioned from artists famous for everything from graffiti (see their signature Peace print) to concert art (check out Marq Spusta’s True Love print).
Sakroots uses unusual shapes and boho-chic embellishments like crocheted trim and braided zipper pulls to create a hipster vibe perfectly at home with a pair of Birkenstocks or a Cremieux Porkpie hat.
The Sakroots Artist Circle small messenger bag is a perfect example of the careful craftsmanship that characterizes this brand — note the stitching and stud details around the zip pocket of the flap.
Their laid-back art and cheerful karma don’t keep the Sakroots designers from understanding that some of us study yoga positions via a tablet or find the right wine bar with a mobile app. Check out the fun Sakroots Artist Circle iPad folio or Sakroots smart phone wristlet.
No need to worry about staining your Sakroots Artist Circle top-zip tote while communing with nature at your nearest state park. The coated cotton canvas tote is tough and water-repellent.

Which Sakroots style fits your look best?
Show your style savvy with a fun, unique retro-inspired bag. A fashion-forward trip backward, these styles highlight the best of trends from the days of 8-tracks and bell-bottoms. Not sure what to look for in vintage? We’ve put together a short-list of this fashion’s best features.
Hardware Hues: For that perfectly time-weathered look, these pieces often sport deliberately tarnished or antiqued silvertone or brasstone zippers, chains and studs. Check out the UGG Australia Brooklyn Small Cross-Body Bag for hardware you’d expect to see on that bag you scored from the back room of a vintage boutique.
Western Designs: A favored style of the ‘60s and ‘70s, Western-inspired details like those of the Frye Vintage Stud Hobo were a flower-child’s staples, with sweeping boot-like patterns and metal studs that would feel right at home on the ranch yet perfectly set off your casual look.
Leather Flourishes Woven leather panels (we love them on the Cole Haan Victoria Tote), playful tassels and decorative embossing were standbys of their time and a standout feature with nostalgic flair.
Earthy Tones: Colors that remind you of shag-carpeting and laminate-topped tables make for fresh, distinctive fabrics and leathers, with names like rust, chocolate, avocado and the butterscotch version of one of our favorites, the Fossil Vintage Revival Convertible Cross-Body Bag.
Stalwart Silhouettes: Vintage works especially well with shapes like the Fossil Key-Per Train Case that were popular when a soda cost 5 cents, like boxy cross-body bags, train or cosmetics cases and adorable little kiss-lock coin purses.
