Why Kate Spade New York’s Latest Bag Is The Investment Piece Your Closet Is Missing


While your trendier bags may fall in and out of favor, a classic style will stick by your side season after season. It's one that'll work just as well with your sundresses as your heaviest coats, which means it's usually worth investing a little more in — the trick is just finding one that will *truly* never go out of style — and last you for years, too. That's where Kate Spade New York's new Romy bag comes in.

It's a brand known for serving up stylish, sophisticated accessories, and Kate Spade's latest release is no exception. Ringing in for $378, the Romy Medium Satchel is a seasonless piece that'll undoubtably become a major player in your wardrobe given its clean, minimal design and versatility.

Made with a combination of pebbled and smooth Italian leather, the luxe-looking top-handle style comes with a detachable (and adjustable) strap. So, it can seamlessly transition to a shoulder bag or cross-body on days you're running around town. On top of that, you won't have to worry about it toppling over when you set it down thanks to the tiny feet on the bottom to keep it upright.

You'll probably find you can fit all your essentials comfortably within the Romy bag, too. Its roomy shape provides ample space for a wallet, notebook, sunglasses, and more. Plus, there's a large slip pocket on the inside that can hold your phone and keys. As for the outside? A sleek exterior pocket makes for a nice spot to tuck your work badge or metro card for easy access.

Currently, the bag is available in six colors, ranging from neutrals to punchy hues. The more color-inclined shopper should look at the Romy in "Berry Blitz," "Blustery Pink," and a shade of baby blue called "Frosted Spearmint" as well as the bold red version titled "Hot Chili." The satchel is also up for grabs in a deep burgundy called "Cherrywood" and a classic black. But, no matter which color you set your sights on, each bag features a charming signature Kate Spade heart that acts as a twist-lock closure.
