The official handbag of classy ladies everywhere lets its hair down.
A longtime staple of the teetotaling crowd, the satchel can usually be spotted on the arms of the chic, corporate nine-to-fivers and other polished ladies who make up the lunch crowd. And although the bag graces many a closet, rarely has it made its way into the nightlife scene—until now. Blame it on the Ryder Satchel by 3.1 Phillip Lim, which comes in a variety of party-ready finishes from snake to multi-colored rabbit. This season, the satchel is a natural to accompany even your wildest fall trends. From leather to leopard, the party doesn’t start until you’ve got a satchel in tow.
