Girls, I think I just found my next bag: Ferragamo‘s brown leather messenger with whipstitch detail and Gancini hardware. The ever-classic Ferragamo tends not to conjure up images of wild youth, but this has the ruggedness of a saddlebag and the easy feel of something the most glamorous girl at Woodstock would have carried. The delicious leather, all wrapped up in whipstitch leather, will age beautifully; I would actually love to see this bag get a little roughed up. I don’t understand people who are afraid to get scratches on their bags – when I see some distress, I see a bag well-loved. Clothes are meant to be worn and the same goes for bags. So take a laid-back hippie outlook with the “Emidia” satchel, and this summer, let love for your bag rule. At Ferragamo.com for $1,990 or call 212-759-3822
Pair with: Daisy Knights’ 22-karat gold-vermeil feather ring for a whimsical, music festival-worthy sensibility. On Net-a-Porter for $375.
