Sometimes it takes a handbag outsider to remind us how it’s done. All of us bag people can get a little caught up in logos, leather types, and the traditional bag powerhouses at times, but sometimes it’s nice to peer outside that, to people that make clothes first, and then bags, and see what they come up with.

Jil Sander Oversized Leather Bag

Jil Sander is one of those designers. She’s known more for her overall minimalist aesthetic than her accessories collections, so we don’t cover her often, but her Oversized Leather Bag is nothing short of impressive. In her trademark simplistic color scheme – if you can really call “Black and More Black” a color scheme – Sander has created a functional, grown-up bag for a woman with a self-assured sense of style. An interesting visual point – there is no exposed hardware on this bag (a similar feature of the Fringe Satin Clutch). Even the small buckles attaching the handles are wrapped in black leather, reinforcing the monochromatic, minimalistic look for which Sander is known. Buy through Net-a-Porter for $1490.
