Carlos Falchi Large Python Drawstring Tote
Carlos Falchi Large Python Drawstring Tote

As my mom and I browsed Saks today, she was drawn to an exotic handbag hanging from the mannequin. One look and I knew it was Carlos Falchi. She loved the python, the handle, the bunching of the skin. Next thing I knew a gal passed us by sporting a different Carlos Falchi handbag. It was like an eye-opening experience, well, kind of. I think many Carlos Falchi bags are hit or miss (a total hit would be the ostrich clutch!). The exotic handbag look is still a huge hit, and while the economy slumps, many handbag aficionados are checking out more affordable but still chic exotic handbags. I am not saying Carlos Falchi Large Python Drawstring Tote is exactly more affordable, but it still is cheaper than many of the huge designer house exotic bags. While this bag is available in both red and dark brown waxed python, the red is a sure hit. It adds the color spring is asking us all to wear and the exotic skin that we crave. There is a 6.5″ drop from the top handles and a drawstring top. The inside is lined in sumptuous microfiber and features a side zip, two cell phone pockets, and a key holder. Dimensions are 11″H x 13″W x 9″D. This is a handbag my mom loves; casual, exotic, and a little different from usual. Buy through Saks for $2,725.

    There have been quite many look alke croc bags,so this one does not hit me. And the price is quite heavy.

    It’s gorgeous, but way over my budget.

    I’ve never liked a drawstring handbag but for some reason this adorable peice of candy looks fun and still very practical. If I had the budget, I might actually spring for this…

    hideous. classy if more neutral. this is just tacky and is a dead giveaway as a fake falchi!

      For 2800.00 and sold at Saks, this could hardly be a fake—or are you suggesting that Saks has suddenly turned into Chinatown?

    That’s right TACKY is the word…I can see it in the mall w matching heels and gold hoops and a full on jog set.
