The Statement Bag

Color blocked

There’s no better time than the changing of the seasons to stop and reflect on your wardrobe. We’re all starting to put away the light tees and tanks and stock up on sweaters and jackets. The changing of the seasons is lovely, but for the money, there’s no better investment than a statement bag to take us through fall, winter and beyond.

Some of our favorites here in the shop include a sumptuous leather boho bag in color-blocked cream and brown, totes and clutches with shagreen detailing, and a breathtaking aubergine bag made from embossed merino wool felt. Come fall in love with one of these special bags today!
