So how many of you are still loving the "wings" now that they are mass market with Coach and Michael Kors. And who thinks it is played out.

Let's start with the originals:
The Celine Luggage and friends
http://www.celine.com/en/collection/...ods/luggage/13
http://www.celine.com/en/collection/...age-phantom/16

Then how about the inspireds
Reed Krakoff Atlantique and minis

Then the mass-stige ones
http://www.coach.com/online/handbags...10051-19890-en
http://www.michaelkors.com/p/MICHAEL...l/prod19620057


Next?
It is sure to hit Zara and H&M and Forever 21 and Mango.
Oops...guess it is already here:

So is it a Yay or Nay?

Hmm, I have to say I like the wings. But now that EVERYBODY and their mama is throwing wings on bags, its becoming a little much. Could that mean that wings will eventually be a staple style such as the satchel or the hobo?

Anyway, I like them and wouldn't mind adding some wings to my collection. It just has to be the right bag.

I've been pretty much over it from the beginning. Not my style at all, though I will say I like most of the inspired by ones better than the original ones.

I'm enjoying seeing the variety...some very subtle, some more pronounced...I just like too many bags, period; regardless of brand.

I call them ears. Bags with ears.

Never liked the Celine Luggage tote, but the ears on the Coach Candace or Michael Kors Selmas I actually don't dislike as much as the Celine. Perhaps because of proportions? Smaller ears, maybe?

Nay on the ears from the start.

I'm kind of over it. The only bags with this style that really appealed to me were Celine totes, but they are out of my price range, and I'm even getting tired of seeing them now

I still like them. I think it gives a bag an edge. They're all over the magazines and runway shows, but I actually haven't seen anyone carrying one IRL.

I like them, as long as they're small. Bags like the Coach Mini Tanner and DVF bags have small ears which I think is cute. But if they're as big as the Celine bags, I don't like it.

I like a lot of them (Celine and the inspired-by styles) but don't own one. I do wonder if it will look dated soon.

I actually like the Coach one better than I thought I would. But I don't think I'd buy one.

I like Michael Kors Selma the most. I actually think Longchamp Le Pliage is the one who started the wings trend since it has been there since aaaages ago.

I've always liked the "wings" from a practical standpoint. Having the sides of the bag pushed out a bit makes the top opening bigger and much easier to get in/out of in my opinion. So I think that's a design element that is going to stay.

As for the Celine luggage that inspired it all, I've always thought the iconic feature of that bag was the wavy lines and face, not the wings. I'm so over THAT!

Love my Krakoff mini atlantique and think the Kors Selma looks like a classy functional bag.
