There's never a shortage of new handbags emerging each season, but the trendy hardware and predictable shapes are becoming less and less appealing. The latest collection of Tulci handbags, though, somehow manage to exude a timelessness while still looking clean and of the moment. Designer Anjali crafts all her bags in New York, using only the most supple of leathers, allowing the craftsmanship to speak for itself. Though the everyday totes are tempting and stylishly simple, we're in love with the line's in-flight bag—its classic slouchy hobo shape makes it a carry-on convenience that looks as sharp as any shoulder candy you can carry on the streets of Manhattan.
• Tulci bags are available in New York at Annika, 243 E 78th Street, 212-717-9644. Bags range from $125 to $650.
