After spotting sculptural bags adorned with architectural metal clasps on the 3.1 Phillip Lim runway (seen above) this past September, we knew the style would become the new “it" bag of the season. Now, you too can get your hands on a similar style, no matter what your budget. Aside from our love for the sleek design, these bags are also extremely versatile. During the day, you can take the strap out and wear it as a shoulder bag or a hands free cross body, and in the evening you can tuck in the strap to use it as a clutch. Whatever you decide, we promise this style will turn heads because of its minimalist design. From gold chain link strap styles to ‘70s inspired saddlebags, below 8 bags (starting at $13!) to buy now and wear this spring.
