Most of us talk a big game about streamlining our wardrobes, but the reality is that a pared-down closet rarely yields maximum fashion impact. The good news is that those who crave simplicity with a side of infinite possibilities will meet their match in Eponymous handbags from Betsy Pitts and Claudia Overstrom. The co-creators designed two different classics in sumptuous Italian leather: the top-handle Margot day bag and the smaller, geometric Taylor clutch, both available in oh-so-practical black, camel or bone. But that’s where the expected ends. Each season, the duo offers a selection of brilliantly hued exotic skins, embellished leather and linen panels that affix to the top and bottom edges of each bag to ensure it remains on-trend. The Spring 2013 assortment includes more than 15 options for both, thus letting your inner stylist run wild. Handbags $1,195 to $2,195; panels $395 to $5,795, exclusively at Stanley Korshak.
