Handbags Are My Vice, but I Only Want Them From This New Brand
If I could only buy one thing for the rest of my life, it would be handbags. I love the way they transform an outfit, and I think the great ones are works of art. As a shopping editor, I'm constantly looking for what's new and now, and I found a brand that I can't wait to share. Aesther Ekme was founded in Copenhagen in 2016 by creative director Stephane Park, who worked in the accessories division at Alexander Wang, and studied at Parsons and The Royal Danish Academy of Fine Arts, naturally specializing in accessories. The brand name essentially translates to mean classic bags; it's the perfect descriptor.
I haven't found bags I've been this excited about in a long time. The lines are clean and simple, the shapes are ideal, and they come in the most perfect muted colors. You won't find hardware on any of the styles, in a move made to focus on functionality. Plus, they're offered at a price point that won't make you do a double take. Just keep reading to shop all these perfect bags. The only thing I'm having trouble with is picking a favorite.
