Fabric Bags

Discovering The Row’s New York boutique (situated in a townhouse on the Upper East Side, conveniently around the corner from Céline), is akin to discovering fashion paradise. It’s full of beautiful clothing, artwork and furniture you can purchase, makeup and fragrance, heritage jewelry, and an assortment of delectable shoes and bags. One of those bags is the Ascot, a silk hammock-shaped style that bridges the gap between top handle and tote/day and night. The fabric bag is also having a comeback with other brands. Hayward’s baroque-inspired tote is available in a variety of fabrications (including a richly textured version that could have been used by Marie Antoinette if she happened to go grocery shopping), and FiveStory’s exclusive collaboration with outerwear brand Color Temperature—a furry, bucket shaped tote available in a variance of hues—is the perfect winter must-have.
