We're Mad for These Three Labels' Minimalist Handbags

Don't get me wrong—I adore an over-the-top embellished clutch, exotic skin satchel and striped tote as much as the next girl, but there's something wholly refreshing and cool about a completely pared-down handbag. I'm talking no logos, no prints, nothing but a simple, trend-defying shape and minimal hardware.

It's for this very reason that I've been a fan of Clare Vivier's simple zippered clutches and duffles for years. A.P.C.'s bucket bags and half-moon crossbody carryalls are equally excellent, too. But to my delight, there are several new kids on the bag-designing block whose creations are similarly stripped-down—and I love 'em. Click through to shop all three labels!

Freedom of Animals

Not only does this new brand offer stunning two-tone and single-hued handbags in an array of practical styles, but everything on offer is domestically- and sustainably-produced—and entirely vegan. I can't believe it's not leather!
