I’ve never been a huge bag lover, preferring to focus my energy on shoes, but my recent habit of losing (and thankfully, finding) my wallet has led me to realize that they exist for a reason. I tend to get overwhelmed with options, which makes searching for American made options a helpful restraint. While Clare V., Lotuff, and Baggu are my go-to classics, I do tend to feel a bit of envy when I see my friends carrying whatever the new and cool bag may be…
I stumbled upon Candamill while deep in the internet wormhole recently. The bags are beautiful, terribly cool, and made entirely in New York using the finest leathers and materials by brother and sister designer team Cindy and Cristian Candamil.
My personal favorite – The Arc bag, in either color. Black is always perfect, but how good would that chalk blue look with white jeans in a few months?!
