Of smooth, genuine leather, the Medium Hava Top Handle bag boasts a painted edge and an interesting fold detail that adds chic dimension to an otherwise flat profile.
The silvertone hardware is unmissable, polished to smooth perfection in the manner of a turn lock closure that provides you with fuss-free access to your belongings, all while adding swanky sheen to the classic in making.
If you prefer to show off this satchel in the office, remove the adjustable straps and carry it by the sturdy top handle that is artisanally stitched to perfection.
The interior of a designer handbag may be obscured from the line of sight of onlookers, but Proenza Schouler does not take advantage of this knowledge to compromise on quality.

While top handle satchels with flap closures are usually hard to secure, Proenza Schouler takes said problem in its stride. Beneath its decadent leather flap, the Medium Hava bag is equipped with an unassuming chain toggle that hooks on the front of the bag to hold your belongings together.
