Minimalist bags are still having a moment. One of the latest carryalls to catch our eye is from Cali-cool label Vince's first-ever handbag collection, comprised of luxe leather clutches, croc-textured totes, and other structured chic shapes. The NY-based brand has designed the perfect multitasking crossbody of our dreams with the above convertible bag.
Measuring about 8" by 6" by 2", this envelope bag is crafted from 100% Italian leather and features a washed cotton lining. We're really feeling the light gray shade for its wear-with-anything possibilities, but this little bag is also available in other bold and neutral hues. It can be worn with or without the strap, and the simple "V" cutout is the perfectly subtle way to break up the sleek silhouette's clean lines.
