Camilla Skovgaard XV Matt Croc Embossed Leather Bag: Sense and Sensibility

From shoes to bags, a fluid transition is a rare thing for a designer. But Camilla Skovgaard has managed to maintain her sensibility with her foray into handbags. She’s gotten it right with this rolled bag, borrowing the iconic treads from her soles and transforming them into something that belongs on your arm, not on the ground.

A cylindrical shape is strikingly unique. Add an über-bumpy texture of embossed croc, and the result is major impact. If you’re feeling especially daring, you have the option of removing the strap and carrying it as a really cool (albeit not totally functional) clutch. It’s all for show, anyway, and an un-basic black bag like this draws attention without a glimmer of flash. Not only does Skovgaard have a uncommonly and inherently edgy aesthetic; she also might just have the great sense to make a legit lifestyle brand out of it. On Luisa Via Roma for $695.

Pair with: Don’t get ahead of yourself by wearing a pair of Camilla’s heels, too. Contrast is key, and you know I love a good navy-black pairing. Versace’s metal-trimmed boots bring hardware with an appropriately avant-garde silhouette. On Net-a-Porter for $1,425.
