Emphasizing a push on color for spring, Tiffany & Co. leathergoods design directors Richard Lambertson and John Truex unleashed a pretty palette of coral, chartreuse and sea rose across a variety of textured bags for every occasion. “The collection captures the newness of spring, which is so much about color,” said Lambertson. “We’ve focused on a spectrum that goes from white to classic neutrals to brights in textures and shapes that are modern yet timeless.” Among the new pieces, my favorites were the wicker collection, including the Cleo bucket bag, Dahlia satchel and Blaine clutch. Natural caning provides a clean structure for the Avery top handle bag and Eliza tote, ideal for summers in Palm Beach or the Hamptons. The Maddie lunchbox top handle bag is a more tailored look with its glazed crocodile in a slew of bright hues, including Tiffany Blue. As for one of my favorite clutches? The Ellie bow bag in vachetta leather features a whimsical coral satin bow and oversized beaded strap.
