Editor Obsession: A Handbag by Asprey
We’d love to get our hands on this Cerulean Crocodile tote by the classic British brand.
I’ve been obsessed with Asprey since I stayed at Beverly Wilshire, Beverly Hills (A Four Seasons Hotel) for a Four Seasons Magazine fashion shoot. The bathrooms at the Hotel were stocked with the brand’s luxury bath products, which led to the following discovery: The greatest fragrance in the world is Asprey’s Purple Water. Upon my return to New York, I visited the Asprey store to supply my home with the same deliciously fragrant shampoo, conditioner and bath gel.
On my most recent trip to replenish, I fell in love with the Belgravia Darcy handbag, shown here in beautiful Cerulean Crocodile with raffia details. A combination of lambskin, patent leather and raffia is woven by hand on a wooden loom in Paris to create the simple yet elegant pattern. The handles and side panels are crocodile in a cerulean shade that inspires daydreams about the Mediterranean. Whether I go there for the season or stay close to home, I want this bag on my arm.
