Moms everywhere have received lovely Mother's Day gifts designed just for them by their kids – you know – cards with hearts, off-kilter clay statues, popsicle stick frames -- all that sweet stuff.

Well, Joan Kors, charming mother of Michael (ah yes, a proud mama and a proud LIer) is getting something nice for Mother’s Day too – a handbag designed by her son and named in her honor.

The luxe structured top-handle bowler satchel features an outside zip pocket and shoulder strap. You can get it in full-grain nappa leather, crocodile-embossed nappa and patent leather with rhodium or gold hardware

“My mother travels constantly and loves the idea of a bag that’s both utilitarian and luxurious, so I created the Joan Bag for her. There is no better way to celebrate the woman who has been there since the beginning…so this bag is a tribute to all mothers,” says Kors, who celebrated his 30th year in business recently.

Mama loves it. “I am honored to have this new bag dedicated to me, I think it’s symbolic of the love that sons have for their mothers world over,” she says.

Son or daughter, we think your mom will like it too (we do). The MICHAEL Michael Kors Joan bag retails for $328 and is available at select department stores, Michael Kors retail locations and
