To move an actual mountain, choices are limited to dynamite (too dangerous), erosion (if you have millions of years), or magic (we’re still waiting, Hogwarts).
To reach a more allegorical peak — such as finding a simple and distinctive purse for all seasons — the solution is as easy as Moving Mountains, a new less-is-more accessories line.
Made in Brooklyn by Hawaii-born designer Syrette Lew, the sturdy bags have timeless style and are actually affordable. Pull double duty with a leather Dopp kit/clutch or heavy canvas and veggie-tanned leather bucket bag/backpack. The latter (ideal for bikers) is finished with cheery, striped silk lining and antique brass hardware.
A fawny brown canteen pouch with adjustable cross-body strap feels delightfully vintage (our favorite), but if you desire more pomp, go for the black bucket bag with equestrian figure-eight strap.
Lew also creates minimalist necklaces from waxed cotton or leather cords and horizontal brass bar pendants.
Elevated style made effortless.
Available at mvngmtns.com, $105-$335.
