Max Mara Whitney Bag

The handbag.

New York has been aflutter with the opening of the new Whitney Museum of American Art, and rightly so; designed by architect Renzo Piano, it features roughly 50,000 sq.-ft. of indoor gallery space. Taking inspiration from this new landmark is the Max Mara Whitney Bag design by Renzo Piano Building Workshop. The soft leather bag features ribbing that subtly turns into fine lines—a reference to the Whitney’s steel tie-beamed façade. The bag is available in black, tan, and bordeaux, but there are only 250 of this special edition, made in a light grey-blue evocative of the museum’s exterior. Art as fashion, truly.
