WHAT: Perrin Paris Sac A Main handbag
WHY: Because you don't need another It bag. You don't want trendy anymore, you don't want must-have-right-now, and you definitely don't want something that will be so passé in a year. Look no further. We've just discovered Perrin Paris, makers of truly classic bags in luxurious leather. This frame bag could have been your grandmother's--and it would have been just as chic then. West-coasters, thank your lucky stars: the brand is opening its first U.S. flagship in Beverly Hills in September, so start counting down the days...

The deliciously luxe ostrich skin with the no-nonsense shape and gold clasp would make a perfect oversized clutch, just right for tucking under your arm while sporting that impeccable oxford, trousers, and of course, a killer pair of heels...
