The Unexpected "It" Bags of 2012?

Yes, according Refinery 29. I must say, there are many strong contenders....I think that I'm most impressed by Dooney & Bourke's duffle bag. They've definitely "freshened" things up a bit, to the delight of many, I'm sure. I also like the idea of Proenza Schouler's camera bag. It just screams spring. Lacoste's offering is another favorite along with Victoria Beckham's sleek classic.

Treat yourself and your SLR with this adorable camera case/ bag (that also doubles as a cheeky evening clutch).
