Valextra has long been a favorite of Kelly’s and mine. Their outlook is as quiet as luxury gets, and their pieces are as beautiful as bags can be. It’s an acquired taste, no doubt, but once you’ve experienced the lasting richness of Valextra’s leather and fine craftsmanship, you will be hooked for life.
A great way to ease in and own a piece of their Italian lushness is with our mini pouch. We’ve given their most versatile daily pouch a punchy makeover in the exclusive shade of Snob pink. A scalloped front flap adds a touch of feminine flair to the house’s signature soft yet pebbled leather, and the interior’s pair of easy-access slide pockets means you can use it as a wallet, document or receipt holder, or whatever you so desire to help get you organized. Valextra for Bag Snob mini pouch at Snob Essentials for $295.
Wear with: Toss your new pouch into Anya Hindmarch’s Ebury Maxi tote in heady black-and-white chevron stripes of reflective leather. Inspired by traffic signs, they’ve heat-bonded reflective tape to the leather for a light-catching effect. Anya Hindmarch leather tote at NET-A-PORTER for $2,295.
