I saw the Chloé Bronte at Barneys this past weekend, and I instantly fell in love with the straightforward simplicity of its design. I am always drawn to structured shoulder bags, but this one feels even more special than most. The emphatic yet not-chunky hardware doesn’t infringe on the elemental effect of the bag – which is rare.
Color trends come and go, but at the end of the (increasingly short) day, there is nothing chicer than black on black. If you had any doubts about the power of monochrome ebony, look no further than Nancy Gonzalez. Her small flap shoulder bag captures the epitome of all-black appeal, in my opinion.
Beloved by in-the-know downtown girls and the Olsen twins alike, What Goes Around Comes Around has been a trusted New York City institution for vintage finds for years.

Unless you’re perusing The Outnet and Barneys Warehouse with Sherlock-level stealth, it’s basically unheard of. Put the binoculars down: the Bo and Brigitte bags by B Brian Atwood are the answers to all your bag dreams
