For those of you (and by that I mean me) who love Chloé’s Baylee bagicon but just can't get over that double-zipper pull (and the inconvenience that comes with it), here is a new rendition that’s a total problem-solver. The smooth-leather tote version offers the same look, but the double-zipper detail has been implemented in a way that’s easier and more functional by leaps and bounds.

My gorgeous friend Dareen Hakim has charmed me once again with a bag as original as it is sensible, two often-dueling qualities that she's managed to make a trademark of hers. Ever-inspired by architecture, Dareen has named her latest style after France’s famed royal palace, but there’s nothing old-fashioned or even Rococo about it.

Just another bucket bag? Not so fast. A basic black tote? It’s not that simple! Marni presents a wise variation on the bucket style that we’ve been seeing so much of lately, yet again. But unlike the typical hard-to-access, hand-biting bucket (I’m not big on drawstrings), this one opens up like a friendly tote.

Here is a perfect example of a bag that illustrates the pillars of Bottega Veneta: impeccable craftsmanship, contemporary functionality, and timeless design topped with quality materials.

You won’t find me sporting ostentatious, logo-laden pieces. My taste is quieter. I opt for bags of the subtle breed à la Valextra and Hermès because with luxury, no gimmicks are required.
