Fashion: "Classic" is how 7 For All Mankind's accessories design director Amis Garrigue summed up their newly expanded handbag collection for Fall 2008. "Something you could pull out of your closet five years from now."

Previewing the collection at New York's Soho House on Tuesday, March 25, Garrigue said in designing the new collection, she opted for smaller, more elegant bags, most in square, rather than round, shapes. Illustrating her point, Garrigue pointed to a chic vintage-inspired square satchel bag with a long over-the-body strap.

"I say this is the bag I designed for myself," she said. "I'm so tired of the oversized hobos."

The collection echoes the more refined, subdued mood for fall -- no oversized patent leather bags or shapeless hobo bags in loud colors here. Instead, Garrigue emphasized handcrafted details, like pleated or woven leather and soft folds, supple calf and goat skins and subtle hardware -- leather covered rivets, for example, as a reference to the denim for which the brand is well-known.

The line features three different price tiers, with pieces like wallets starting at $75 all the way up to $1200 for their more elaborately detailed handbags in leather. For more casual everyday use, the range also includes bags in nylon or canvas.
