Smooth is an understatement. Sleek and suave don’t even cover it. Victoria Beckham’s tasteful leather tote is impossibly debonair and uncommonly serene. With an eye for class, the steadily growing designer (her Spring 2012 collection revealed Victoria is only getting better each season,) is proving she is not just a fashion plate with a love of great clothes. She is a force of luxury to be reckoned with.
Pavement-colored matte leather is as cool is it as polished and impeccable black stitching only accentuates the simplicity of high-grade skin. And that’s where the secret to true bag beauty lies: artful restraint. The hardware isn’t showy, the style isn’t trying to be more complicated than it should. This bag is also meant to be carried on a near-daily basis.
Lightweight with a no-brainer top-handle, this rectangular tote has three internal compartments and opens up wide for expandable space. Appreciating classic glamour and paying close attention to every subtle detail, Victoria Beckham is convincing me she is worth the high price. On Net-a-Porter for $2,995.
Pair with: Do as Mrs. Beckham would and carry this ladylike tote with an unabashedly high pair of heels. Simplistic bags are a pleasure because you can go wild with prints elsewhere. Giuseppe Zanotti delivers 6” sex appeal; his peep-toe slingback is covered in black and white stripes, leopard-print trim, and a bright yellow snake-embossed heel. Giuseppe Zanotti Striped Canvas Platform Sandal, $750.
