Bag shopping can be fraught with complexity. There are so many factors to consider: color, size, shape, strap length, price. And the fact that, ideally, it should work with most of your wardrobe. I also shy away from totes that are ubiquitous, logo-ridden or weigh more than a healthy newborn baby. Given my long list of criteria, it’s infrequent that I come across a bag that I’d want to include in my small collection of Chosen Ones. But I love everything about this beauty from Acne—the contrasting neutral shades, the sturdy leather, and the stiff fringe that is both masculine and feminine. Plus, the versatile cross body strap will do well over winter coats or spring dresses.
