Black Handbags: The Wardrobe Workhorse

Three styles from the new Pour La Victoire handbag collection.

Brightly colored bags: playful and fun. Handbags in bold, autumnal hues: so rich (see Alexander Wang bags in shades of mustard, whiskey, and oxblood). Yet, there remains nothing quite as time-tested and wardrobe-essential as a classic black handbag. Styled downtown edgy, like Pour La Victoire’s first foray into carryalls, or sweetly ladylike (Temperley London and Tory Burch bags come to mind), the black bag slides seamlessly into nearly any ensemble.

Don’t get me wrong, I’m currently carrying a slouchy cognac Kooba bag, but I know it won’t be long before I transition back to my trusty black Botkier.
