Frye ‘Cameron’ bag has New England all over it

This season’s favorite bag will look good long after fall

Every era has its “It” bag, be it the top-handle, hobo, or baguette. Recently it’s the satchel in the spotlight. Frye, the 150-year old Massachusetts-born boot company, which opened a flagship on Newbury Street earlier this year, offers a hard-working satchel ideal for New England sensibilities. Fashioned of full-grain leather accented with solid brass hardware, the bag looks equally at home dangling from the crook of a chic 20-something’s elbow as it does slung over the shoulder of a tweedy academic. And like the brand’s iconic boots, it only gets better with age. “Cameron” satchel in iris, $498 at The Frye Co., 284 Newbury St., Boston, 617-247-3793,
