Searching for a designer handbag that ticks all the boxes can sometimes feel like looking for those elusive fit-like-a-glove jeans. And then once you find it, it's not uncommon for the handbag of your dreams to be emblazoned with branding. If you're not the flashy, show-off type, but still appreciate quality, Australian Australian blogger Brooke Testoni has just answered your aesthetic dreams. Testoni has taken on a new chapter in her life and announced on Instagram her new handbag label: Rylan.

Testoni chatted to Natasha Harding at Harper's Bazaar Australia about the launch and describes the brand's aesthetic in five words: "classic, luxury, understated, nostalgic and effortless." Testoni had a clear vision of finding a luxury, quality, and classic handbag that came under the $1000 mark. But with little success, she decided to fill the gap in the market and design her own styles.

So what does an incredibly stylish and knowledgeable woman of the industry design for her new label? A range of leather and velvet bags all costing less $1000. Buckles are also a prominent feature, which look just as much effortless as they do luxurious. We're not surprised to see that Testoni has gone for the buckle detailing, as she has been seen wearing the Boyy bag and Givenchy buckle boots on repeat.

Testoni's favourite style, as she told Harper's Bazaar Australia it reminds her of a handbag her grandmother would have carried.

Less is more, and buckle detailing could not be more of an understated feature.
