AccessoriesMagnes Sisters

I recently discovered a NYC-based handbag line called Magnes Sisters, which does beautiful clean, modern bags that are influenced by vintage elegance. Launched by the talented trio of sisters Dina, Yael and Tamar, they create bags with the on-the-go city gal on the mind, exclusively utilizing “designed hardware, sumptuous Italian leather, vintage wools and playful silky linings” as well as “detachable straps, multiple pockets, and a keychain” — to maximize function and design.

My favorite from their collection is the Dry Martini bag; it’s also a favorite of model Eugenia Silva, as shown in a recent issue of Elle. Available in 6 hues (try Plum or Platinum), this clutch is made of supple Italian leather. The slight pleating and bean-shaped handle creates interest for the eye, but keeps the bag looking clean and sophisticated. To view the entire collection or find your nearest retailer, visit

    This bag is adorable! The top also flips up so you can carry it with the handle. I got mine at which has free shipping on all of the items.
