In our search for the most eye-catching trends of the moment, we often forget to appreciate the amazing versatility and classy allure that accessories with a high focus on refinement, simplicity and functionality can provide with extreme ease. Reviving the well know principle according to which a classy handbag with minimalistic details can be the most versatile choice of all, the latest K. Kiechel spring 2012 handbag collection features several lust-worthy styles to consider. Katie Kiechel, who has had the privilege of working with big brands from the industry such as Reed Krakoff and Kate Spade definitely brings a new spin on investment type of accessories.

Neutral tones are the most suitable choices as far as functionality is concerned, so the choice of tones like ivory, light and dark brown tones, black or metallic touches is far from being unusual or surprising. A subtle change in attitude can be sensed in terms of shape, however, as the designer does bring a few eclectic touches here, like pyramid shaped bags for a quick break from the conventional handbag styles and a new creative touch we all crave for and love.

Handbag styles are also fairly varied, giving women which are highly oriented towards getting everything they need from a single handbag multiple choices: fun cross body bags, alluring satchels, roomy totes or gorgeous clutches being only a few of them. Metallic accents like the iconic twisted ring which serves as a logo, give a new vibe to seemingly minimalistic designs opening a whole new range of possibilities for several style preferences.

Understated yet never boring, the designs have a trendy vibe due to the always refined exotic skin touches which add interest both texturally and chromatically speaking. Leather is the preferred fabric for the long lasting accessories and the subtle variations as far as texture is concerned adequately emphasize the wide array of variations one can enjoy without the slightest compromise on style or glamor. Let effortless versatility be your mantra with these glamorous handbags.
