Buzzed-about bag lines are like movie starlets: When they’re hot, they’re hot, but there’s always new arm candy waiting to steal the spotlight.
New reversible totes by Ali Golden have true star power, thanks to stellar performances in both supporting (deep pockets, removable cross-body straps) and starring (they’re designed to fit your life) roles.
Frustration with finding a sack for everyday use prompted Golden to take matters into her own hands. Sourcing all materials herself (using vintage fabrics whenever possible), she sews the accessories from start to finish in her Oakland studio.
Cast a waxed cotton canvas in a playful blue stripe/cream combo as an eye-catching companion to the farmers market or lug your laptop in a denim/chambray duo. The ikat and gold with black leather straps and brass rivets amps up a little black dress.
Bags are one of a kind, so you better act fast.
