Drop everything: The perfect party purse has officially arrived. Janis Studios has just released its Darka Patent bag, the latest iteration of its signature purse, and you’ll want to wear it to all your holiday parties this winter. Not only will this on-trend patent handbag allow you to carry those party essentials throughout the night, but it’ll be the perfect accessory to complete any holiday ensemble, whether it’s a sleek pantsuit or a chic dress for the night.
You may have first seen the iconic Darka Bag on Instagram sprinkled among It girls this past summer. With its ethereal pastel hues and stylish, interchangeable handle options, Janis Studios took the fashion world by storm. Now, in the brand’s latest drop, it's getting a whole new look for winter. The Darka Patent — available in size small, $370, and size big, $460 — maintains the classic and minimal tote shape of its predecessors, but the slick patent leather material is what makes it a game-changing accessory for the holiday party circuit. Inspired by the nightlife of the ‘90s, this purse was essentially made for a night out, whether you’re celebrating something or not.
Though the eye-catching shine makes this bag a statement-making addition to any outfit, this patent purse is also surprisingly neutral, which means you can style it with literally anything you wear. Dress up a standard jeans-and-tee ensemble for the next holiday get-together, or let it complement your glitzy party dress and shoes on New Year’s Eve — there’s no going wrong here. And once the holiday festivities have finished for 2018, you’ll want to wear the Darka Patent well into the spring.
Along with the drop of the Darka Patent, the Parisian brand also released its Bamboo handles, which you can add to your collection for $50, adding to your endless list of ways to wear the bag. Opt for these cool, bohemian-inspired handles for a daytime activity, and then switch to the Gold Hoops or Nickel Chain when you’re ready to head out on the town. You’ll have a new purse in a matter of seconds.
If you’ve already been planning your holiday party ensembles for weeks (if not months — you know who you are), or you’re just starting to browse for the perfect pieces, you’ll want to add this effortlessly cool patent bag to your cart. Between all of the compliments you’re bound to receive every time you take it out, its timeless style, and the range of outfits you can wear, the new Janis Studios bag is easily worth the investment.
