Powerhouse designer Stella McCartney is a force to be reckoned with in the world of faux leather. She makes the mock material look largely authentic, thanks to brilliant designs, choice details and classic silhouettes that all equate to must-have handbags with (relatively) reasonable price tags. Her Falabella Faux Brushed Leather Shoulder Bag wins seasonal points for its radiant yellow hue and beautiful gold hardware. The interior is lined with a soft rose fabric made from – get this – recycled plastic bottles. This designer practices what she preaches, and the end result is almost always lovely. Get buying, ladies. Available for $895 at Net-a-Porter.
