The New York-based accessories brand Vasic launched its first collection in 2015 with the intention to create “the standard handbag” for everyday use. The line feels timeless but it’s easy to distinguish; classic shapes are accented with trendy add-ons, like a simple tote lined with fur and a padded nylon bucket bag that sort of looks like a puffer coat.
The big draw, though, is that they really do work for just about everything, from daytime errands to going out at night to traveling, and everything in between.
