Leather ‘Ryder’ bag – JOSEPH

is the name of the game, and JOSEPH
knows it like a seasoned quarterback. The new bag & leather accessories collection borrows from the boys but also a nod to uniform, both things – I’ll be honest – that make me swipe right*. That isn’t to say, that the pieces are to be taken too seriously. On the contrary, the Ryder
is a stellar upgrade to the everyday work bag with a twist of bowling
, the Mortimer
a versatile everyday clutch, and don’t even talk to me about the how clam-shaped Cosmetic Pouches with contrast stitching remind me of Linguine alle vongole with a glass of dry Chardonnay.
There’s a crispness to the Mortimer that smartens any frumpy getup (everyday in this dank London weather). The zips are nifty too, swipe left into a wristlet, or zip right to convert into a boxy shoulder-strap.
Dress – JOSEPH. Shoes – Celine.
