Objects of Desire: A Trio of Tory Burch Handbags

The Lee Radziwill Satchel

Perhaps the linchpin to Tory Burch’s Spring/Summer ’19 family of accessories is the Lee Radziwill satchel. Monikered after the free-spirited former princess and younger sister of Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis, the lock-and-key handbag is an apt and timely homage to the late style icon, who recently passed away in February. Burch first met Radziwill 11 years ago through a mutual friend and was besotted by her impeccable way of dressing. What came next was only natural: Radziwill’s effortless elegance fuelled the birth of this handbag. This season, the Radziwill handbag arrives in a limited-edition miniature size.

The James Saddlebag

Adhering to the equestrian tropes of the ’70s, the James saddlebag has remained as the brand’s perennial staple since its early beginning. And it’s easy to see why: its soft curved lines, geometrical gold buckle and compact size deftly toe the line between romantic retro and modern sensibilities. Behind the James sits the Radziwill satchel, covered with the same chain-link motif in the same deep azure colourway.

The Ella Tote

Front and centre on the Ella tote is Tory Burch’s easily recognisable signature double-T logo — a symbolic medallion that alludes decades-long of its American timelessness. For Spring/Summer ’19, the hand-held canvas bag retrospectively delves into a past era, where warm vibrant hues and irregular stripes reign supreme.
