Silver & Riley offers an array of handbags, cross-body bags, travel bags, work bags, small leather goods, and gift cards for Mother’s Day, Father’s Day, weddings, and graduations. Their well-crafted Italian leather bags are a gift that will endure for years, especially with timeless styles and thoughtful construction details. This black-owned and women-owned brand is an editor’s favorite at Travel & Leisure (the duffle/weekender), Marie Claire, Forbes, Harper’s Bazaar (The New Yorker Bag), and here at Beauty News NYC (The Milan Crossbody). Silver & Riley is founded by Lola Banjo, who is proud of her Brooklyn, NY roots and upbringing and her Nigerian heritage, and it’s dedicated to her mother, who was also an entrepreneur.
The Silver & Riley New Yorker Bag is a power bag that you would fully expect Shiv Roy to carry in Succession as she boards a private helicopter for yet another takeover strategy meeting, and this style comes in an array of colors, including tan, blue, black, and red.
The Milan Crossbody Bag is ideal for traveling hands-free and features a convenient side pocket for a passport or smartphone. I love this in their Scarlet hue for summer vibrancy, and it’s also available in sea blue, black, and camel/tan.
Their Cylindrical Bucket Leather Bag is a super cute, distinctive ice-breaker of a bag for brunch, clubs, soirees, and wherever you may roam. Available in Sangria and black, it’s ideal for keeping things light and elegant on the go.
You’ll also find Carryall Duffle bags and other inspired handbag styles on the Silver & Riley site, along with wallets and beautiful passport holders HERE, to complement your summer adventures.
