Precious. Sophisticated. Cutesy. That’s the Marni I have come to love and cherish, encompassed here in this bowler-shaped frame bag (though flatter than a traditional bowler). A twisted lady’s bag, it’s a classic purse with a delightfully dizzying black and white pattern. White raffia is woven with black leather, for the illusion of a peek-a-boo bag but with all the privacy you require. Yeah, yeah, you could wear it with black and white and that would be cool for a full-on checkerboard look, but I’d rather go nuts with this bag. Color-block, throw in big and bright solids, or mix patterns – a magical neutral like this stands on its own yet goes with everything. On Net-a-Porter for $2,015
Pair with: A candy-pink jersey top with a hood for some slouch appeal is the unexpected top to go with an atypical satchel. At Diane von Furstenberg for $285.
