Why this Influencer-Approved Bag Line Should Be on Your Radar

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.

“It’s been such a fun project to work on because we shot in downtown Los Angeles, and I mixed the pieces with my own clothes.” Really, the vibe was not so different from the way Roe, who relocated from London to the City of Angels 9 years ago, dresses off camera. “There’s a warmth to the colors in this line, like mustards and burgundies, that works well with all the neutrals in my everyday wardrobe. These bags truly go with everything!”
