Founder Betsy Lee named her line of all-purpose bags “Gavroche” after little Cosette’s best friend in “Les Misérables,” the character who carried his satchel wherever he went.

“It was functional, versatile and useful. He never went anywhere without it,” said Lee.

The bags retail for $75 to $250. The $95 Ultimate Beauty Bag, which Lee calls a “lifeline to function, organization and survival,” is a frequent-flier’s dream, as it has three quart-size inserts that magnetically snap in, three interior zip pockets and two outer pockets. It’s available on the brand’s Web site at and comes in punchy shades of raspberry, cobalt and green.
