Rebecca Minkoff Spring 2010 at Henri Bendel

I got the chance to stop by Henri Bendel last week where Rebecca Minkoff was there in person for the launch of her Spring 2010 handbags to mini cupcakes and complimentary champagne.

Some old favorites in new fabrications and colors for Spring. Salmon, cocoa, cream, camel and python were definitely important.

Pops of brights like fuscia, yellow and blue were my personal faves. Check out the beloved Morning After Bag (MAB) in perforated leather.
This tie-dye effect on the leather is quite amazing. It's actually hand dyed by artisans in Ethiopia. The leather is vibrant but still buttery soft and supple. The black tie dye MAB Mini is my next handbag want item! I'm so weak when it comes to tie dye.

Here are a couple of Rebecca Minkoff's amazing new shapes for Spring 2010. The first is actually from the designer's desire for a elongated hobo shape but the detailing is inspired by Motorcycle Jackets. Peep the pyramid studs and rivets on the Easy Rider. The second bag called the Heartbeat and is based on a Fortune cookie for the shape! Inspiration comes from the most unexpected places! The crossbody style with the chain straps is as adorable as it is unique.

The Heartthrob clutch got a brand new chain hardware for the Spring season.

Ms Minkoff was super friendly and putting fellow shoppers at ease with her relaxed manner. In the above picture she was actually drawing a winning ticket for a giveaway that night! Too bad I didn't win, I could use some more Minkoff in my life.
