PHOTO COURTESY OF POLÉNE PARIS
If you’re in the market for a classic bag that’s nicely made, won’t break the bank and has Parisian chic stamped all over it, Polène Paris is a brand to have on your radar. The Parisian leather goods label is known for its minimalist creations, which are handmade by artisans in Spain and offer timeless and modern silhouettes that you’ll undoubtedly get a lot of wear out of.
One of its designs is the practical and elegantly structured Numéro Sept (number seven) that’s crafted in smooth full-grain or textured leather. The former will cost up to USD480 while the latter is priced slightly lower at USD390. Considering its full leather appearance with a suede inner lining, it comes at a great price point.
Measuring 23 cm in length, 21 cm in height and 12 cm in width, the roomy creation can easily fit all your daily essentials, including a mini iPad or Kindle, comfortably. It also comes with a removable top handle to hook on your arm and an adjustable shoulder strap, which allows you to wear the bag over the shoulder or crossbody for ultimate versatility.
The only problem you might have will be choosing a colour. The bag is available in 8 classic hues, including Black, Terracotta and Taupe to name a few, which all contrast charmingly with the gold-plated stainless steel elements.
And if smaller is better for you, you’ll be glad to know that the Numéro Sept is also available in a cute mini size that’s priced from USD380. The dainty creation, which measures 17 cm in length, 16.5 cm in height and 10 cm in width, highlights the perfect duality of leather and gold, and features the same removable top handle but now with a chain shoulder strap.
