Sara Berman plays it safe with this elegant Raphael Day Bag.
This is the kind of handbag that suits any occasion or situation. It doesn't make a strong style statement, but there's an elegant quietness about it that's really attractive. It might not turn as many heads as a more trend-focused accessory, but it will find a place in your wardrobe as fads come and go.
If you dismiss it as boring you'll miss its beautiful details. It's an old soul, but the triangular stitching around the straps makes it feel a bit more modern. The gleaming brass studs are also a gorgeous complement to the conservative brown leather. While the color is sedate its gentle glaze makes it much more compelling.
The Raphael is spacious but it stops short of being unwieldy. That's largely due to the unique design, which has not one but two compartments. Why not use one for the office and the other for fun after hours? The rolled handles are likely to slip from your shoulder, but at least they're long enough for easy carrying.
I haven't always been Sara Berman's biggest fan but she's gotten it right with the Raphael. At $653 it's a bit more expensive than her other bags, but it's also better than most.
