Must-Splurge: Perrin Paris’ Suede Riva Ball Bag and How to Wear Suede Now

With Spring a little over a week away, a new handbag is in order. I cannot think of any better purchase than a Suede Riva Ball Bag from Perrin Paris.

The style is a veritable masterpiece and the brand’s most popular style. It features an intricate basketweave design, comparable to modern architecture and channeling a “panier”, French for basket. Grosgrain ribbon trim and hand-stitching add to its elegant detailing.

The style to the left is crafted from nubuck and some of my other favorite textures are patent leather, anaconda snakeskin and crocodile. No matter which color or finish, the piece is completely sophisticated yet has a modern edge and can serve as a daily way to make a statement or your ensemble’s standout piece when going for something more simple.

Suede is a must-have for Spring from tops to shoes and it adds a hint of luxury to an ensemble in an understated way. Here are some of my fave picks and pieces that will go perfectly with your new Riva bag:

Vince’s Suede Dolman Tee ($495) is a fun and flirty piece to give your wardrobe some variety. You can’t go into spring in style without adding a bright statement shoe to your arsenal and Jenni Kayne’s Suede Open Toe Wedge Booties ($525) are a perfect choice. Before the weather gets warm, it’s all about funky jackets and Veda’s Max Classic Suede Jacket ($740) is a cool way to stay warm and can also be worn once Fall comes back around.

Perrin Paris’ Suede Riva Ball Bag retails for $1250. Visit to purchase and to see other Riva styles.
