2010 Best Handbags, Designer

Meichi Peng, Meichi Peng Design Studio

Interior designer turned handbag couturier Meichi Peng doesn’t do “it” bags. Each handsewn Italian calfskin creation is made with classic and moderndetails—like contrasting outer lining and decorative zippers—so it’s sure to be around long after that PS 1 bag goes to consignment.
