001 medium bag in black python, $3,590, by Tom Ford at Neiman Marcus, Fashion Island
The model everyday bag should possess three essentials: functionality, versatility and, of course, a stylish twist. Tom Ford’s most recent foray into handbags has all of these in spades, but the subliminal touch of his signature branding makes these pieces irresistible. The 001 collection includes two sizes—small and medium—and offers an assortment of colors and finishes, from leather to exotic. A new T-shaped clasp gives the effortless design an edge, while the adjustable strap easily takes the bag from midday lunch to evening cocktails. With an abundance of styles, the collection is just the way to kick off the year. Take on the cooler months with the sleek medium size in black python, and as the season progresses, switch it up for the small size in white leather. Ford’s products always create a fashion frenzy—with his vintage pieces soaring in popularity, don’t miss your chance to own a piece of his empire. We kindly suggest a 001 bag in every color.
