Remember tangrams, those geometric shapes that you played around with in grade school until they somehow made sense...or (in our case) just a pretty pattern? Looks like NYC-based bag line Atelier Nunu was taking better notes of the exercise than we were. The two-year-old company has pulled some mathematical (but seriously chic) inspiration from the rectangles, squares, pentagons, and rhombuses of our past and has translated them into a sophisticated collection that's (pun intended) the perfect fit.
They're structural enough to crisp up any outfit, but not too streamlined that you can't still wear them with a flowy summer frock. From luxe envelope clutches and vegetable-tanned leather totes to one major green shoulder bag, the accessories are totally timeless. But we're obviously looking to grab them right now. And lucky for us, the brand's sold at local boutiques No. 6, Assembly NY, and Stuart and Wright. As for geometry class? Looks like all that pain with numbers finally did pay off.
