Smythson Cooper Tote: The Sight of Summer

April 17, 2013

When it comes to stocking up on summer bags, vibrant bohemian prints and glossy candy colors will tempt, but nothing speaks of the season quite like a tote with a nautical edge. Think yachts and sailboats, sparkling ocean views and salt-sprayed air. In time for summer 2013, Smythson has ingeniously revamped the classic nautical bag. Keeping it clean and simple (the way it should be), this is pure, breezy sophistication.

Deep blue and bright white is a combo fit for a sailor, but this bag also deserves to be flaunted on dry land. Thanks to an architectural silhouette, you get to take in the details. Like clever leather piping and the juxtaposition of grained and smooth textures. A confident way with colorblocking freshens up an overdone wing-tote shape. And note the way the panels overlap: the dark hue does the dirty work, so your white stays clean and pristine. Let?s hope you can say the same for your white jeans! At Barneys New York for $1,680.

Pair with: Avoid all-out prep and mix your tote with an embroidered ruffle. Isabel Marant?s Anaya top imbues summery sweetness, sans saccharine. On Net-a-Porter for $630.
