Call it what you will: burgundy, cabernet, oxblood - the list goes on and on. Name notwithstanding, the arrival of Fall always brings a fresh crop of burgundy handbags, and this season there are some standout specimens. Here are two of the most luxurious and user-friendly burgundy handbag offerings for Fall 2014.
The Fendi Peekaboo Bag ($3,400)
If you're looking for something that is the very definition of elegant, understated luxury, look no further than the Fendi Peekaboo Bag. Crafted with the kind of high-end materials and luxury detailing that you would expect from the house of Fendi, the Peekaboo is made from lush calfskin leather that with care, will age beautifully. The bag has some very quiet yet luxurious details; there is an understated rotating metal turn lock engraved with Fendi on both sides of the bag, a gorgeous microfiber lining and zipped inner pocket and plaque, and external straps on either side of the bag that can be opened or closed to reveal the interior of the bag.
The Marni Trunk Bag ($1,500)
This calfskin shoulder bag features five compartments to help keep you organized, and a tuck-lock metal closure that is both understated and unique. The adjustable shoulder strap allows you to choose between wearing the bag over your shoulder or slung across the body, making it bang on-trend. The sleek, minimalistic design is just rustic enough to be perfect for every day, yet elegant enough to make those who know handbags stop and take a second look.
