Finding the perfect carryall is easy once you check out this stylish mix. You’ll find everything from convertible satchels and quilted leather totes to slouchy hobos and bejeweled envelope clutches from a covetable list of designer names, including Isabella Fiore, Christopher Kon, and Badgley Mischka.
Kelsi Dagger’s shoes, boots and handbags are just as spunky and cutting-edge as those of its elder sister, Pour La Victoire, but go a bit easier on the budget. Named after the Fratellis song “Chelsea Dagger,” which tells the tale of a burlesque dancer, Kelsi Dagger is the brainchild of New York-based designers Jay Adoni and David Giordano. The duo launched the label in 2008 to offer trendy, finely crafted footwear defined by a quirky, irreverent quality and unexpected details. Kelsi Dagger’s provocative, wide-ranging collection includes everything from studded sandals, suede tassel loafers, sky-high leopard wedges, and metallic platform pumps to ankle booties and sexy thigh-high boots. The label’s of-the-moment buckled satchels, crocodile-embossed crossbody bags, and sleek totes skew minimalist and consistently meld practicality with style.
