boxed goods

the new it bag You can always bet on a new "it" bag emerging from fashion week, and this year it's Mark Cross' Grace leather shoulder box bag, which has a structured, briefcase-like shape along with an elegant ladylike vibe. (Interesting trivia: this bag's design was inspired by luggage used in Alfred Hitchcock's 1954 film Rear Window.) These boxy bags are showing up in a myriad of colors like this and this and not leaving the sides of fashion bellwethers, such as model Alexa Chung, below, who chose tried-and-true black leather, and Vogue editor Kelly Connor (last pic.) Of course, like most "it" bags, this one comes with a hefty price tag, but I dug up some inspired options from Kate Spade, Marc by Marc Jacobs and Asos
