Hellooooo, Brando! It’s only fitting that one of the most attractive bags of the season has the same name as one of the most swoon-worthy movie stars of all time (and arguably the hottest). Botkier has done it again for Fall. Also like Marlon in his prime, this bag also looks strong and durable. Maybe it’s that grainy leather. This an urban bag, yet it possesses decidedly sophisticated polish; ultimately, this is the bag you need swinging from your arms this fall.
As usual, Monica’s photographer eye is ahead of the trend curve. Color-blocking? Who needs it! Playing with varying textures of cowhide, performing leather-blocking in monochrome shades, she takes mixing it up to a higher level of chic. A watersnake detail on flap adds a touch of luxury. The only problem is now choosing between crossbody and satchel…and what color?! Satchel, $495, and Crossbody, $295, at Botkier.
