Jumping into the Sacks

Jumping into the Sacks

Because a girl can’t live on cottons totes alone, Nixon—the company best known for supplying cool watches to the surf-skate-snowboard set—has debuted a collection of buttery cowhide handbags that work in dressier situations than the beach or skatepark. Inspired by ‘60s rock, motorcycle jackets, and modern geometry, the label’s new Decker trio of handbags—the Smith, the Reed, and the Dylan—combines
handcrafted, raw detail (exposed seams, twill liners) with serious functionality: smart phone and passport pockets, places to stash pens and loose change, wrapped leather handles. All great reasons to upgrade from your Trader Joe’s canvas carryall.
