They made their name doing men’s denim, but Jake Sargent and Daniel Corrigan, the designers behind Simon Miller, are taking on a whole new category: handbags.

The debut design in this range is a teeny bucket bag, also known as The Bonsai. Forgoing a basic leather strap, these purses feature two silver hoops of hardwear instead. There’s nothing more thrilling than letting your phone, credit card and a single lipstick dangle dangerously from a finger or two.

Available in six color ways, the canvas version of this petite accessory is ideal for toting around St. Barts for New Years. But the tan suede number will tote along nicely to any wintertime soirée, from now until mid-March. Really, this is a versatile piece and please, don’t be ashamed to stash it in your work bag. In case of emergency, it’s a perfect stowaway to have on hand for impromptu late nights.

This Simon Miller design will cost just under $400, so feel free to stock up on more than one of these babies. We’d recommend going for two; you can’t go wrong.

The Bonsai can be purchased at Barneys or SimonMillerUSA.com.
