Browsing structured handbags.. because you know, I have lots of free time right now
NONE of them are structured or boxy, and sometimes an outfit screams for something more angular.
This Rebecca Minkoff M.A.B. (Morning after bag… not sure why they named it so oddly with such a strong hint of a one-night-stand), looks quite nice.
I like the clean, simple lines, the simple front flap, and that it has a doctor’s bag feel to it.
It also look structured without being too boxy like those Cambridge Satchels that have been overdone to death and knocked off everywhere as of late.
MATT & NAT MALONE VEGAN BAG
I was pawing this Matt & Nat Malone vegan leather bag in Town Shoes recently (in black).
I liked the doctor’s clasp on it (it opens up REALLY nicely and closes with a satisfying snap)… but the vegan leather has deteriorated in quality since I last purchased a bag from them (Samsara, their now defunct line).
The vegan leather feels like.. well, vegan leather, that is, plastic and stiff. It doesn’t feel like leather, which is disappointing.
It looks better in black than in cognac, more stylish and chic.
KATE SPADE UTILITY BAG
Then Revanche comes along with this email, and my immediate thought was: PREEETTTTYYY!!!
It even opens up like a doctor’s bag.. LOVE.
Anyway, that’s as far as I got right now. Obviously I have a style I like — doctor’s bags, but I also want a more structured look… that is soft.
I may be too difficult to please.
