Fur bags are everywhere for fall, but who says you need actual fur – real or faux – to be on-trend? Anya Hindmarch’s shirred leather has all the trimmings of a furry bag, but it’s somehow so much chicer. Besides, you’re getting an unusual bag that won’t seem stale once all the fur fuss dissipates.
I’ve never been too fond of fringed bags, but this goes above and beyond. When leather has been artfully razored for an all-over effect, bring it on! The metallic finish shows off the depth and mysterious texture – and, reminiscent of opulent confetti, gets you ready for the holidays. It comes with a single chain strap to wear over the shoulders, but it looks so much more appealing as a clutch. The look of luxurious details without the luxurious price tag: this is fun, fab, and frugal at its shiny, shirred best. At Saks Fifth Avenue for $795.
