Jil Sander Framed Calf Hair Shoulder Bag: Be Proud as a Peacock, Make Them Green with Envy

Now I really do believe in love at first sight! Let me count the ways I adore this uncommonly chic Jil Sander bag. Silky-soft calf hair. Lush peacock-green. Polished black leather. And it’s an easy convertible shoulder bag to top-handle evening clutch. This deep emerald gem has all my favorites covered and then some.

With straight edges and a strong boxy shape, this is striking and confident, and the breezy shoulder option just increases the modern feel. The top-handle bag for nights out is my new obsession, and I can’t imagine ever going back to conventional clutching. Having something to hold onto makes so much more sense than gripping a little bag when you’re on the go. Jil Sander’s framed bag is the perfect size for such a style: it allows for an evening look without getting too dainty, as if you’re carrying a child’s bag with the tips of your fingers. However, in this case, it’s the unusual hue that catapults this into lust territory. This rich peacock-green is just muted enough to rest in the neutral category, but thanks to the plush texture, this brightens up when you wear it as an accent against other colors. The best of both worlds! Nix that. This bag is the best of several worlds. On Net-a-Porter for $1,750.

Pair with: This would be so incredibly chic with fall’s dark charcoals. Go two-tone with Theory’s black and gray Lavindina dress, with a jersey turtleneck and tweed skirt. On ShopBop for $325.
