wardrobe: the essential bag

This was love at first sight.  I’m in need of a grown-up cross body bag and think I’ve found the one.  This is the “half moon” bag from A.P.C made out of Italian leather with a tiny discrete embossed logo.  It is uniquely beautiful and so simplistic at the same time.  But is it essential enough to make it into my wardrobe?  TBD…

update: I purchased this bag today in SoHo!  The sales associate informed me that this bag is the only style that has rolled over from season to season at A.P.C.  They only receive small batches, like 2-3 bags, every few months and almost always sell out and therefore never go on sale so there is no reason to wait.  The classic bag is the black in a smooth soft leather.  The other colors change with the season and feature varying textures as well.  I chose black.  It was designed to be large enough to fit a Poland spring water bottle.  It also happens to make the perfect DSLR camera bag as well (with the lens detached of course).  Love it.
