This season, designers have delivered some of the brightest and trendiest pieces in a while. We’ve seen a mass array of color blocking, heavy set satchels, chunky hardware and attractive animal prints. I’m always in appreciation for something new, but it’s the classic bits that you simply can’t resist. I have yet to obtain a simple black handbag with gold-toned hardware. I lack one in my collection and every time I wish I had one, I wonder why I haven’t obtained such a universal must-have.
On my triple-digit wish list is one of the simplest and classiest pieces you can get for your buck. The Saffiano Tote by Tory Burch arrives with one of the most straightforward silhouette and design. This is the luxury of Tory Burch, and it’s done wonderfully! Take a closer look and you’ll discover a textured composition of saffiano leather that is known for its linear crosshatched design. This rough but beautiful leather arrives extra durable and scratch resistant, it’s sure to look just as new with the passing years.
My favorite feature is the simple metal logo medallion up front and the metal feet that serve as extra protection at the base. As some of you bagista’s may note, Tory Burch isn’t the first designer to pull this elegant design off as we’ve witnessed this look done before by the House of Prada and Chanel. But if the three-digit is more reasonable for you verses a four digit price tag, you can obtain Tory Burch’s interpretation via the online shops of Shopbop
