Here's what stoking our lust today: the Miky by Tod's, a striking, quietly elegant carryall that seems custom-made for the contemporary, multitasking woman.
Leading the (bag)pack this season, the Miky is a subtle tweaking of one of the Italian fine leathermaker's enduring designs, the Bauletto Miky Classic, and will transition smoothly from daywear to drinks with the girls depending on the size you choose.
Available in four sizes, the larger ones will double up as a weekender with its hands-free shoulder strap or for stashing baby essentials when you're on the go in town with your toddler—see Jessica Alba's stylish get-up (above) for inspiration.
The Miky comes in plush pebbled calf in a suite of neutrals and meticulous constrast seaming, which accentuates the sensuous, rounded curves of the bag. If you're in the mood to splurge, feel free to up the ante with the exotics: the Miky is also offered in python and suede croc and alligator.
Truly a timeless investment, there are no faddish accents like heavy-handed studs or oversized zippers, so you can carry the Miky today or ten years from now without well, future observers taking the mickey out of you.
