From the family of cross body bags may I recommend this highly versatile VBH lovely. First off, you can detach the strap to convert it instantly into a day or night clutch. Love! Second, note the solid buckle and the two side zips that provide maximum storage capacity. Like all VBH pieces, the quality is superior and the look is always subdued. Bruce Hoeksema, the brainchild behind the brand–who is now also designing leathergoods for Asprey–is the epitome of a dashing gent, so it’s only natural that his offerings reflect his taste. This VBH piece is busier, in terms of design, than what the brand is traditionally known for, but I like it because it skews toward a younger demographic–a very rich, younger demographic.
$2,750, available at VBH boutique, 940 Madison Avenue, 212-717-9800
