The Khaite Maeve Bag is a Great Alternative to The Row Margaux

For about half the price...

Khaite has become somewhat of the face of American fashion, part of a new subset of designers to come out of New York in the last decade, quickly becoming a force to be reckoned with. In the eight years since designer Catherine Holstein founded Khaite, the brand has quickly become a go-to for industry insiders, editors, influencers and cool-girls alike.

While that fateful image of Katie Holmes hailing a cab in New York wearing a cashmere bra top and cardigan combo by Khaite will go down in pop-culture fashion history, the brand continues to redefine dressing in the modern digital age, focusing on classic American sportswear pieces with modern edge.

Wardrobe essentials, elevated, if you will.

All About the Bags

Those essentials would eventually expand to include handbags, launching for Fall 2019 and making their debut at Kahite’s inaugural NYFW runway show. Largely ahead of its time, Khaite’s bags screamed quiet luxury before quiet luxury was even a thing. Nailing minimalism while staying true to its clean, feminine aesthetic.

Four years later, Khaite’s collection of bags is vast, with coveted styles ranging from weekender bags to delicate frame bags perfect for nights out and everything in between.

With the continued trend towards classic pieces that will stand the test of time, there’s no better time to invest in a Khaite Bag, and it just so happens that one of them is a great alternative to the quiet carry fashion won’t stop obsessing over.

Yes, I’m talking about The Row Margaux Bag, a supposed contender for the next Birkin. The Row Margaux has been around for quite a bit, but its popularity has doubled, or even tripled, in the last 6 months, increasing demand and making the Margaux hard to track down.

Enter: the Khaite Maeve Bag.

Get the Look for (Slightly) Less

The Maeve offers the same clean lines and minimalist aesthetic as the Margaux at a price that is much more accessible. Like its kindred spirit, the Maeve offers a variety of sizes ranging from small to a large weekender, with options in both soft suede and supple, buttery leather.

Colors are mostly neutral, aside from a lush blue suede that delights and a chic emerald green, and the medium size feels the most comparable to the look of the Margaux. Prices range from $2,100 to $4,200, with suede being pricier than leather versions of the same size.
