I get used to talking about many of the same designers from day to day because let’s face it, they make great bags and they make bags that I love. But there are so many other options out there, and I would hate to leave worthy accessory designers out of our coverage. That’s precisely why I spend hours browsing online, flipping through magazines, and checking out lookbooks – so I will know as much of what’s available as possible.
Jil Sander is not a foreign name to the fashion world – quite the contrary. But Jil Sander bags have only been a blip on the radar, they have never reached out and grabbed my attention fully. That is, until now. Right when I saw the Jil Sander Malavoglia Tote, I knew it was a beautiful bag that deserved its own feature. So here it is for you Malavoglia Tote, your own post on PurseBlog. You earned it.
This is a bag I believe should be watched. The ultimate fashion style stars may not be running out to buy it, as it is not of Celine fame right now, but I imagine the refined editor adoring this bag hanging from her arm. The design has a a similar quality to the beyond famous Celine Luggage Tote, but it is not a copy.
This bag stands out for its clean lines and simplicity, but that does not take away from its inherent beauty. Arctic-blue deer leather makes for a sturdy but sumptuous design, and the handles under the top slot give an alluring finish. There is of course an optional shoulder strap, but no matter how you carry it, this bag is suited well for those that love a good bag but don’t need the latest “it” bag. Buy via Net-A-Porter for $1,890.
