Forget real estate—invest in this.
Here are the key features to know:
A subtle flash of logomania comes courtesy of an oversized zipper pull that can
be discreetly tucked away or left on display.
The bag’s crumpled-calfskin body was made with some slouch—all the better to accommodate your wallet, phone and a week’s worth of lipstick options. It comes in solid colours, like this shiny black, or bicoloured versions, like timeless black and nude.
The carryall’s most distinctive feature is its rigid bottom half. Inspired by the shape of virtual-reality goggles and vintage binoculars cases, the base was moulded to fit to the curve of your hip.
The dual-metal hardware reinforces the message that mixing gold and silver is de rigueur. The adjustable straps let you wear the bag several ways: on the shoulder, as a clutch or across
the body. See the video below for a demonstration.
