Splendid Byron Bay Tote: Hold It At Bay

While it’s tempting to bring your favorite soft calfskin, luscious suede, and elaborate exotics to the beach or pool, you know tossing such skin on the sand or wet concrete goes against your better judgment. And really, at the end of a long, sweaty, sun-scorched, splash-soaked day by the water, it’s not worth the worry.

Pour La Victoire vs. Maison Martin Margiela: Boxing Match

Once considered a novelty, the ubiquitous box shape is now a staple in our bag collections. It’s still a fun diversion from your go-to essentials, though, which is why it can be hard to justify splurging on a piece like this Maison Martin Margielaicon (on thecorner.com for $1,745). If you’re hesitant, go with Pour La Victoire’s black Bonne Tonne (on Shopbop for $395).
