Geometric accessories that get an A+

What geometry looked like for you in high school: agonizing study halls and a slew of flunked pop quizzes.

What geometry looks like for you now: Blacksea handbags.

Determined to deliver an easier lesson, brand founder and creative director Jane Lerman launched a collection of structured shapes and nautical shades that add up to something special.

Choosing just one of the NYC-made styles — made from grade-A Italian leather, heavy-duty canvas, and woven cotton — is more difficult than your last multiple choice test.

The smart Greenwich clutch (in navy, aqua, or sand) recalls the golden beaches of the Black Sea; interior zip pockets and a place for your iPad ensure a breezy subway commute. The Broadway brief answers the work/life conundrum: The envelope (in navy and white) fits a thirteen-inch laptop and nods to Odessan seafarers and sailors. The triangular Tribeca pouchette (black and white) masters urban edge; an optional strap makes it the perfect dance partner.

Bonus points: DailyCandy readers get exclusive access to the goods before they hit the virtual shelves.

See you in class.

Available for preorder at blackseacollection.com, $329-$699.
