In a world full of Mansur Gavriels and their minimalist ilk, here’s a bag that’s unapologetic about being over-the-top. This black Henri Bendel satchel will go with everything, but the shiny croc embossing adds an extra dimension that separates it from the basics. At just under $700, it’s a splurge, but one that’s much less detrimental to your wallet than similarly luxe styles. Wear it with a simple pair of black culottes and a white top, or highlight it with a sleek slip dress.
