Since its debut last year, the “Pilot” satchel—Rag & Bone’s first-ever handbag—has shown up on the arms of “it” girls everywhere (mocha is the color of choice for shoppers at the brand’s year-old Newbury Street boutique). But this spring, as we switch out our sweaters for sundresses, and our mittens for monokinis, we’ll reach for the new compact version. The clutch boasts the same buttery Italian leather, cool military styling, and metal hardware as its larger counterpart, but the bright blue hue invites thoughts of warm days and clear skies to come.
