Listen up, everyone. I’ve found the perfect bag. Not only is it ideal for daily life—it fits your wallet, a mask, hand sanitiser and even a bit of makeup—but it’s also great for evenings out. Don’t believe me? Well, the good news is I’ve collected the evidence to prove how versatile and chic this bag actually is. But first, let me give you the details. It’s a leather crescent-shaped handbag with a thick strap. It’s smooth and pretty featureless, other than a couple of silver belt studs and a well-hidden zip. There’s no denying that it bears more than a resemblance to The Row‘s Banana Bag, but it comes at a much more affordable price point.
So far, I’ve spotted minimalist queens Marisa Martins and Alexis Foreman wearing this bag. Foreman opted for a tee-and-skirt look with hers, while Martins went for a suit, proving that this bag can be worn with plenty of outfits. I would also like to point out that I bought this bag for myself (it wasn’t a press gift), which means that I really love it. Today, I’m wearing it with a knit dress, a jacket and some caged sandals, but I could even wear it with a pair of joggers, and it would elevate the whole look.
Naturally, the style sold out in weeks, and then sold out again when it came back in stock earlier this year. Then an orange version dropped and yep, you guessed it, that sold out too. But we’re happy to announce that it’s finally back again in the black and cream colourways, just in time for spring. So if you missed out before, now’s your chance to finally get hold of this fashion gold dust handbag.
