Holly Caldwell's Ladylike Handbags

Good golly, Ms. Holly

holly caldwell handbags!

To the tune of the Tom Jones classic “She’s a Lady.”

Well they’re all you’d ever want,
The kind of bags you like to flaunt and take to dinner.
Holly Caldwell makes the case,
For mod structure, class, and grace. She’s a winner.
Totes for a lady. Whoa, whoa, whoa, totes for a lady.
Talkin’ about Italian leather, in colors (poppy, orange, cornflower blue) so fine.

Caldwell’s keen on geometry.
Retro shapes, sartorially, are such a blessing.
Interior pockets for all you own,
Stuff your keys, gloss, and phone, and there’s no messing.
Bags for a lady. Whoa, whoa, whoa, bags for a lady.
Talkin’ about sleek hardware, with details (painted edges, interchangeable straps) so fine.

To construction, she’s devout,
On trend, but classic’s never out, and that’s not easy.
You’ll want one through and through,
Boxy color-blocked or solid blue, but we must warn you:
Priced for rich ladies. Whoa, whoa, whoa, priced for rich ladies.
Talkin’ about four figures (mostly), but the line’s a one plus nine.

Available at Jussara Lee, 60 Bedford Street, at Morton Street (212-242-4128); at hollycaldwell.com, $795-$2,800.
