Every Friday at the Cut, we’re highlighting one great purchase for which it’s absolutely worth eating ramen noodles for the rest of eternity. If you’re looking for cheap thrills instead, check back every Monday for a fun pick-me-up that will still leave you enough cash for dinner.
Some of us treat our bags like rare and precious songbirds that must never be exposed to the elements; for the rest of us, a purse is nothing more than a portable vessel for storing the day’s crap. Contemporary Parisian label Maje speaks to both factions with their new signature purse, the ‘M bag.’ Priced at a modest $295, it’s a sensible designer purchase you won’t feel remorseful over by tomorrow’s lunch.
Essentially a two-in-one, the ‘M bag’ can function as either a top-handle for easy accessibility or a cross-body when the weight of your personal junk suddenly gets real. You can also have your pick when it comes to color and texture: It will be available in both suede and leather in seven rich, tropical-feeling colorways that’ll keep you counting down the days until summer.
