Although the immediate response to this piece is, “Cute but juvenile,” as it is with many things Charlotte Olympia, this actually works. On a big, serious bag, Charlotte’s now-trademark kitty cat mug wouldn’t feel right. But a mini bag, meant for fun times? I say why not.

On-trend shoes and breezy, insouciant ready-to-wear? That’s Isabel Marant all the way. But the still-reigning boho-princess hasn’t been one we turn to for bags, until now. Meet the Hanley shoulder bag, a mid-sized suede staple with plenty of casual appeal.

There's a reason this Alexander McQueen style is named the Legend. A tote like this is in it for the long haul. We’ve already loved in it graphic floral-printed form, as well as a more structured and shapely incarnation, but it’s this newest edition that has me staring.
