For the style icon: Moonshaft double zip bag

Ask a woman which items from her wardrobe are most coveted, and she will likely list out her handbags, so you can’t go wrong by adding to her closet collection. Going against the current trend of fast fashion without the massive luxury house mark ups, emerging leather goods brand Moonshaft values style as much as quality. The Double Zip bag takes her from day to evening without compromising effortless style thanks to its hand held, over the shoulder, and crossbody wear. The Italian pebbled leather is sleek and durable, and ages gracefully over time, giving it more character over use.

Price: $1,352
