If you were looking for a sign that it’s time to replace your worn-out work bag, consider this a bright and flashing billboard along the Pacific Coast Highway. The understated luxury brand Vince has blessed our shopping carts with a nine-piece collection of suede and leather handbags and accessories.
The newly released line, which includes a large tote, small tote, hobo bag, camera bag, and a clutch-like leather pouch, is as beautifully designed and finely crafted as we’ve come to expect from the California-based brand. In fact, the brand drew precisely on its West Coast origins to create its latest drop. The Topanga Tote, available in black and saddle brown, is just at home with a laptop tucked inside en route to the office as it is in the front seat of a convertible on a leisurely drive through the Los Angeles canyon it was named after.
The Topanga Mini Tote, a truncated version, is perfectly sized for day-to-night use as is the Catalina Camera Bag that can be worn crossbody style and is begging to be your new go-to travel bag. The fourth piece of the collection, the Canyon Hobo, is a welcome return of the style we wore religiously in the early aughts, but the ultra-fine suede and crisp stitching add newness.
Aside from the bags, Vince has also released three staggered sizes of zippered pouches, which are leather with suede on the reverse, plus a card holder and a canvas-leather cosmetics case. Made with Italian leather, and featuring signature white top stitching on all styles, this limited run of styles is available exclusively at Vince.
