When thinking of R: Refined Satchel, words like “structured,” “ladylike,” and “double rolled handles” come to mind. The satchel is reminiscent of an era when ladies lunched wearing cloche hats and driver gloves with Paul & Joe felt capes. Okay that era is now, and right here on our site—a little vintage prim fused with the exotic details of fall 2008.
I want to surround myself in the satiny burgundy richness of the Stevie Convertible Satchel (pictured). (Can't Botkier just make over my whole apartment?) And the boxy design of Tory Burch’s Benjerman Satchel (pictured) is the archetype of the refined look we’re after, with wrinkled patent and a pinch of snakeskin keeping it on-trend. The Botkier Chrystie Satchel addresses the dichotomous nature of most women’s personalities: the shape says down to business, while the metallic and snakeskin accents say ready to party.
