For the stylista the logo-embellished, or clearly recognisable handbag, is something they’d rather not have on their arm, which is where the rise of the “stealth luxe” handbag brand has come from.
Labels like Goyard, Valextra, and the more exclusive or obscure collections from top labels are now the preferred accessory. For those of us looking for a bag that’s even more “in the know”, the emerging label Myriam Scheafer is one to covet.

Best-known for her work with Nicolas Ghesquière at Balenciaga – Myriam created the iconic Lariat Bag – the designer has now branched out on her own with a range of understated, classic bags with a bit of a modern edge. Myriam Scheafer bags are all hand-crafted from chemical free leather.

Ranging from £3,966 ($7,900) for her Horlodge Joyce Crocodile bag to £2,864 for one without crocodile, these bags are not cheap, but they are well worth the investment. Now available from cult online boutique LN-CC, these bags regularly sell out which is a sure sign of their desirability. Get one now, while you still can.
Myriam Scheafer bags are currently available on LN-CC; go to www.ln-cc.com/myriam-schaefer to shop. You can follow LN-CC on Facebook at www.facebook.com/thelncc and on Twitter at @thelncc.
