Inspired by the saddlery of the equestrian world, the Polène Numéro Dix has quickly become a go-to among Polène fans, myself included. Defined by its curved lines, half-moon shape, and feminine design that hugs close to the body, it’s incredibly easy to wear and looks lovely dressed up or down. The Numéro Dix is truly the perfect bag for running around whether you’re heading out for shopping and brunch or have a day filled with errands—the Numéro Dix can really do it all.
Big enough to tote your daily essentials with dimensions of 24.5 X 20.5 X 7.5 cm and featuring two straps of different lengths, it can be worn in a variety of ways. There’s crossbody or shoulder wear, which I prefer as the design hugs really nicely to the body, but it can also be worn in the crook of your arm. I own the Numéro Dix in Camel and Midnight Blue already, but still I’m really excited about Polène’s latest additions to its ever-expanding lineup.
New in: the Numéro Dix Edition Crocodile Nubuck
We already know that the embossed croc bag trend is going to be huge as we dive into fall so it’s not surprising to see the Dix given a textural update. However, we love this new version of a fan-favorite even more because it still stays true to Polène’s brand DNA. Nubuck is given an embossed update to imitate real crocodile scales, and the result is a nice textured finish that still offers a hint of Polène minimalism. Unlike most faux crocs, Polène’s take on the trend is rather understated, offering a smooth, velvety finish versus a patent shine.
Like all of the brand’s bags, the Numéro Dix Edition Crocodile Nubuck is made in Spain by trained leather goods artisans using a single panel of leather that has been embossed with a crocodile print. Arriving in three colors — taupe, polar, and cinnamon, the new textured Numéro Dix retails for $500 via Polène.
I am obsessed! What do you think?
