British television host and fashion personality Louise Roe may hail from England, but her clutch for the evening is all American: an elegant little black number by Boston-based heritage brand Brahmin. “I love that you can wear it a million different ways,” she tells me. “It’s something you can use for decades.”

The accessories label certainly has the track record to prove it: for the last 35 years, it’s been winning over It girls and society ladies alike (fun fact: “Brahmin,” is actually a nickname for New England’s upper class) with its timeless faux-croc designs. This evening Roe and I have both gathered to toast the company's big anniversary, which it’s celebrating with a special range of classic re-issued styles from the '80s. These pieces accompany a stellar new Fall collection, styled and modeled by the influencer in a very chic campaign.

These bags truly go with everything!”
