Dutch Lovin'

The jingle-jangle comes following you. It’s the purse charms and designer key chain flapping against your status bag.

Hey, Ms. Tambourine Man, it’s time to simplify.

To start: a minimalist handmade bag by Dutch designer Malou Poelmans. Leathers in rich, natural shades and varying suppleness (from the softest slouchy suede to rigid hides) create elegant yet rugged satchels that maintain their raw edges and interiors.

Each bag is sleek and modern. The giant shopper could house a drum kit — let alone a tambourine — but easily slings over the shoulder. The small purse has folds in lieu of froufrou, but it may be the most interesting bag to tote this fall.

Helping put an end to the status bag quo.
