Chloé Paraty Lambskin Shopping Satchel, Handbag of the Day
The polished black lambskin and polished brass chain link hardware give the medium-sized (15½"W X 10"H) purse a vintage feel, but the tapering of the details on the outside of the bag make the look new. The bag is lined in an elegant beige cotton, and has a top zipper accompanied by a detachable shoulder strap with a 16" drop.
This sturdy Italian-made bag has double top handles, giving it a clearly-defined, voluptuous shape, and would look excellent carried with a brightly colored coat or with next season's vintage layered fabric look. Pair with yellow or pink gold jewelry and jewel-toned shoes for a splash of color.
Available from Saks Fifth Avenue for $1,895.
