Just like her older sister Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis, Caroline Lee Radziwill herself was known as a fashion icon who sat on the world’s best-dressed list for many years, with her style and polished fashion sense lending inspiration towards Tory Burch’s best-selling handbag that’s aptly named after her. And even though it only made its debut at the brand’s Fall-Winter 2018 collection, the Lee Radziwill collection has since grown to be available in multiple variations (smooth leather or croc-embossed) and colour options (from bright and bold seasonal hues to classic tones like black or tan), which also means it has officially sealed its status as a signature bag of the NY-based fashion house.
Part of its charm lies in its clean build, in a slight trapezoid shape that’s finished with a unique lock-and-key clasp hardware right in front. It also helps that the bag comes with an elongated top handle which can be comfortably worn on the inner elbow, along with an adjustable cross-body strap that gives it multiple ways of carrying.
Today, the classic Lee Radziwill bag in Italian calfskin leather comes in 3 different sizes, starting with the Petite (SGD885) which measures just 20.5 cm wide and 13 cm high that’s roomy enough for an iPhone XS, along with several other essentials like a compact cardholder or slim wallet. The next size up would be the Small (SGD1240), which is slightly roomier and taller at 29.5 cm by 19 cm and works perfectly fine as a daytime handbag. The original size (simply referred to as Lee) is the biggest of them all, coming in at 34.5 cm by 23.5 cm that’s great for work, one that’s large enough to hold an ample tablet and furnished with 3 interior pockets to keep you nice and neatly organised. Which, if you think about it, is pretty well-priced at SGD1330, considering its good looks made of specially treated Italian leather.
All 3 sizes come in easy-to-match hues like Black and Moose (Tan) that’s paired with shiny gold-tone hardware, with the biggest size coming in an all-new Cream that’s equally gorgeous on the eye.
