Gryson handbags have become a bit of a cult favorite, and while the designs are nice, I’m never crazy impressed with the leather. Joyce Gryson was one of the big guns at Marc Jacobs, and now that she has her own line, she’s creating even better bags. But the leather! I need something soft I can practically sleep on when I’m plunking down $500+ on a purse. Since this one is patent, I can say that I love it. The long chain handle is a little goth and perfectly contrasts the sweet little dresses designers are pushing on us for spring. The Beca Patent Leather Chain Bag retails for $499 at intermixonline.com.
