Studded Devote Tote by Rebecca Minkoff wins Handbag of the Year
Dec '09
Handbago announced the winners for the 2009 Handbago Awards with the best handbag award given to The Studded Devote Tote by Rebecca Minkoff.

The 2009 Handbago Awards"Rebecca Minkoff is a fashion designer that speaks to the masses but is also ahead of her time in regards to design”, states Kristina Moreno, President of “The Devote Tote can be taken in so many directions. It's edgy, it's fun and it's young with a sophisticated twist. Plus, not only is the handbag popular with consumers, but celebrities such as Lindsay Lohan, Lauren Conrad and Michelle Trachtenberg have been seen carrying it as well.”

“I introduced the Studded Devote as my main inspiration handbag for my Spring 2009 collection” states Rebecca Minkoff. “Spring 2009 was all about the rock and roll lifestyle of musicians and their muses, and the Studded Devote was a great representation of that. The Studded Devote is meant to be the focus of an outfit, rather than just an accessory. Paired with anything from sweats to stilettos the oversized tote is as functional as it is fabulous.”

The Handbago Awards were founded this year after the launch of, an online catalog and community for “All Things Handbags”. “We review a lot of handbags and founded the awards as a way to highlight the designers that stand above the rest”, states Moreno.

Other 2009 Handbago Award winners include The Coco Duffle by Alexander Wang as best couture handbag. The Classic Q Hillier Hobo by Marc by Marc Jacobs was voted as the hottest handbag with the best value while Elemental Threads won as the best eco friendly line. Finally, winning the best emerging handbag designer in 2009 was Zara Terez. “My prediction is that Zara Terez will explode this next year”, states Kristina Moreno. “We are closely watching new handbag trends and look forward to 2010.”
