Carlos Santana Handbags Hit Stores

Back in August, we shared the news that our favorite Latin guitar hero, Carlos Santana, was expanding his fashion portfolio by launching a collection of handbags later this year. Carlos by Carlos Santana shoes have graced our pies on many an occasion, so we've been eagerly awaiting the new line...and here it is!

This Melodia frame bag is just one of our top picks from Carlos's fall handbag collection, available now at Macy's West locations (and Macy's Herald Square for all you New Yorkers). The silhouette is classic, but Carlos keeps it edgy with swatches of black, purple, python, red and even zebra. Somehow, it all works!

Click here for the rest of our favorites from the collection, including a ruffled Sienna shopper in patent blue and a woven, wine-colored hobo that's perfect for a night out. The best part? Carlos is giving back 10 percent of profits from each handbag to his Milagro Foundation (, which raises money for community organizations that are helping out kids in the areas of education, health and the arts. Just another reason to turn up the volume the next time you hear "Oye Como Va," and add a handbag by Carlos to your holiday wish list.
