Meet the new cool-girl bag. The bag for the girl who inherently gets that no waitlist or amount of hype can make you cool if you aren’t already so. Derek Lam 10 Crosby’s crossbody clutch isn’t just the perfect understated, everyday bag. It’s the frugal Snob’s dream come to life. Think the one with champagne taste who’s on a beer budget.
Slender and all smooth lines, it’s got a slim main compartment and a semi-circular outer compartment that obviously offers plenty of no-brainer, pack-light function (the strap is also detachable). With its subtle shapes, it also blends Derek’s ardent love of art into the mix. Let the Baxter be a reminder to us all: money doesn’t buy one good taste, clearly.
I need one in every color. My only complaint is that so far it’s only available in royal blue and black, both of which I’m picking up, stat. Derek Lam 10 Crosby bag available for $375, in blue at Barneys New York and in black on Shopbop.
Wear with: Cool girls don’t get all frenzied over the supposedly hottest labels, either. But they do know all about them. Like Self-Portrait. Their guipure lace midi-skirt will mark your last semi-summery purchase. On NET-A-PORTER for $385.
