Earlier this week we checked out Rebecca Minkoff's late summer and fall handbag offerings. From lower-priced nylon diaper bags to faux croc laptop cases, Minkoff knows that her loyal clients want more than just the signature morning-after bag. Speaking of which, the designer has also recently revisited ready to wear, and you can buy her pared down (but definitely not plain) clothing range online now. Before you go stocking up on all kinds of spring goodies, check out our snapshots of the Fall 2009 handbag range below.

Earlier this week we had the opportunity to check out Frank Tell's Fall 2009 collection in the showroom. His fantastic knit pieces, Givenchy-like romantic blouses, and custom jewelry were just as fantastic on the rolling rack as they were during his New York Fashion Week presentation. The Spanish designer is stocked at Bloomingdales and Henri Bendel in New York and has been seen frolicking around with the likes of Julia Restoin-Roitfeld and Pamela Love. Needless to say, Tell is one to watch. Check out his Fall 2009 look book and a few of our snapshots from the showroom below.
Brooklyn darling Samantha Pleet already has an Urban Outfitters collaboration and an Ecco Domani award for her other contemporary line, Bodkin, under her belt. This season Pleet stuck with her romantic, down-to-earth sensibilities nonetheless. Check out a glimpse at her Fall 2009 offerings, modeled by a cast of creative Brooklynites, in her video look book.
Today's new arrivals at Topshop included two appropriated versions of some of the most eponymous footwear of the century--Chloe's Fall 2008 studded ankle boots and Yves Saint Laurent's Spring 2009 cage boots. Although Topshop's versions are undeniably derivative, to us, they shouldn't be seen as knock offs. In the case of the cage sandal, the overall shape and heel are completely different than that of YSL and in the case of the studded ankle boot, it's now a full year later, and so it seems more like recycled fashion than copyright infringement. Still, you can never really beat the real thing, can you?
