Dooney and Bourke spring 2008
Dooney & Bourke’s 2008 spring line could be one of the best collection of bags and accessories we have seen in quite some time for this long-time company. When we walked into the showroom we were blinded by the metallic selection of gold and silver bags. We all know that this color range is huge for fall and is making it’s way into the spring line. It’s clear that the company has it’s ear to the ground and is staying with the pack of other brands in this highly competitive marketplace.
It seems this season, they are staying away from some of the experimental designs of the past like the western and bumble bee bags and going more straight forward with the new line.
The Alto line done in a soft blue color has a wide range of styles. This is one of Dooney's core lines and performs well season after season. Also there is a great line of patent leather bags (another ear to the ground) move. We have seen this patent leather look with other companies and on the streets of New York. Another item to note is that they have done some of their bags in different sizes which makes your choices even more expansive.
Finally there is a limited edition bag which was co-designed with Hayden Panettiere and Dooney and is already on backorder. From cosmetics to other limited edition clothing lines and accessories the desire to acquire limited edition anything is larger than life. The video’s from the H&M Cavalli launch is proof enough.
