2011 MUST HAVE: Rebecca Ray’s Trapper Handbags

Add the equestrian-chic look to your 2011 wardrobe.

OK, so the majority of Rebecca Ray‘s offerings are a tad too Upstate-New-York-meets-Kentucky-Derby-Crowd for our style. But we’re willing to turn our choosy cheeks when it comes to their limited-edition Trapper series of handbags. The Winter Series bag (shown above) is made from vintage Hudson’s Bay blankets, a rich blended wool. The Summer Series (below) is crafted from French Feedsack Linen; depending on availability this summer, it will be featured in either red or blue stripes.

All bags — just for that extra rural touch — are finished by an Amish leather craftsman who adds stirrup leather handles and a braided toggle closure that catches a handmade bridle rosette. Giddyup.

The Trapper, Winter Series: 12″ x 18″ x 9″ or Summer Series: 11″ x 17″ x 9″, $425.

Both the Winter and Summer series are also available in a smaller size for $325, call (440) 893-9492 to order the Mini Trapper.
