Last week, Vlad and I went to Woodbury Commons, which is one of my favorite places to shop because even though it's an outlet mall, it has some of the most incredible outlets in the world - think Oscar de la Renta, Gucci, Balenciaga. Whenever we want to expand our wardrobes, we always take a trip to Woodbury Commons to see if it has anything to offer, because even though outlets are hit or miss, the possibility of a hit is always alluring. Last week, though, was a major hit - Vlad left Woodbury with practically an entire new Rag & Bone wardrobe. The R+B outlet didn't offer many accessories and the leather-sleeved varsity jackets that I so covet were nowhere to be found, so I hopped on their website when I got home to peruse even more.
Turns out that Rag & Bone knows its Pilot Bag is quite the hit, because now the brand is making a clutch version. Available in five colorways, the clutch features Italian leather and an optional adjustable shoulder strap, which allows for easy transformation into a shoulder bag. I'm digging the distinctive hardware and the overall Rag & Bone aesthetic that is infused into the design. In fact, I expect to see Rag & Bone starting to garner growing attention in the contemporary accessory world. My only issue right now is figuring out which option is my favorite. The price is great and the dimensions are super roomy, 11.5" x 6.5" x 2 1/4". You can pick up the bag in two version: $595 for plain leather and $655 for perforated leather via Rag & Bone online.
