I WANTED THE HANDBAGS TO BE MORE STREAMLINED AND NEAT THIS SEASON, BUT STILL HAVE A TACTILE SENSIBILITY.

the PERFECT CRUSH

The heroes of the Spring 2016 runway? Artfully rendered handbags that give a nod to the season’s earthy elegance and natural glamour. Each Italian-made accessory was designed with minimalism in mind, in clean, pure shapes that highlight the craftsmanship and extraordinary materials used to create them. At the same time, each bag exudes its own distinctive style, providing an exquisite assortment to choose from and perfectly complement everything from feminine flourishes to relaxed tailoring.

the LOW-SLUNG CROSSBODY

Updated in a slimmer shape, the crossbody’s newest iteration is sleek and streamlined—the answer to editing down and carrying only the essentials. Crafted in nutmeg-hued bonded leather with a suede interior, it features belting that cinches the top, creating soft pleats for subtle elegance.




the CRUSHABLE DRAWSTRING pouch

“There are these fantastic drawstring pouches that are lightweight and soft. You can crush it in your hand as a clutch, you can wear it as a shoulder bag— it’s the new silhouette that does everything.”

—MICHAEL KORS

the FOLDOVER FLAP

Smooth French calf leather lends this shape its signature slouch—and is a stylish riff on the soft tailoring of this season’s foldover trouser. It features an exaggerated, looped leather zipper-pull and visible stitch-line from the interior pocket, proving that form and functionality can work as one.




the CHIC SATCHEL

A sun-kissed shade of straw breathes new life into the quintessential structured satchel. In an ode to the natural glamour of the collection, the leather is hand-treated in a unique process to create its two-tone depth, and then finished with sultry burnishing around the edges for additional dimension. Free of hardware and with a hidden closure, this piece is polished to perfection.

the CRESCENT bag

A study in contrasts. The contoured, half-moon shape of this bag is offset by its micro-buckles and adjustable skinny shoulder straps, which were designed to swing freely to catch the wind. Its neutral luggage hue will accent every tone from crimson to sienna, sky blue and more.
