Michelle Vale, a New York based designer has just recently launched a new luxury designer handbag line. Now what's really interesting about this debut collection is that all of the bags come with both a gold and silver set of removable hardware components. One set of hardware is on the bag and the other is elegantly enclosed in a suede-lined leather jewelry case inside a zipper compartment. The two sets allow you the option to wear silver or gold hardware on your bag as you choose. You can change it once if you have a clear preference or you can switch it back and forth for example, if you like to match your jewelry to your handbag!
The other interesting feature of this new designer handbag line is that the bags easily convert from a tote to a shoulder bag and even a backpack to suit the occasion.
With these two unique features, Michelle Vale designer handbags offer women the unique ability to completely customize their own look, from being able to choose the color of the hardware they want to wear on their bag to changing the way they carry the bag.
For example, the Travesti handbag shown in the picture above in luxurious Camel Italian leather (also available in Jet Black, Cloud and Midnight Blue) comes with a shoulder strap, back pack straps and top handles in silver and gold hardware components. This designer handbag features a suede-lined interior with metal logo plates, two zipper compartments, cell phone and blackberry pockets. You get a suede-lined leather jewelry case with a second set of hardware provided inside the bag along with a second strap for a back pack look.
I also like the Tombé Bag shown on the right, once again supplied with both silver and gold removable hardware.
Visit Michelle Vale Handbags to see the full debut collection but as the September issue of Lucky named Michelle Vale as one of the Best New Designers for Fall 2007, one can imagine that these new designer handbags will be in demand.
