Wowie zowie folks. This is a lot of bag for such a little bag. While my first reaction was, “this bag isn’t for me”, there is no doubt that this is actually a great statement piece if you have both the event and the funds for it. So instead of just moving onto the next bag, I decided that this is the kind of bag worth dissecting a bit. While your first instinct might say, “hot mess”, there is actually a bit of brilliance behind the Donna Karan Jewelry Chandelier Leather Pouch Bag.
This black leather drawstring pouch is adorned with metal chain and crystal embellishments throughout. Again, at first glance I was wondering what all that stuff was hanging off of the bag, but thanks to the zoom feature I was able to see an up close perspective. Actually, this is one of the few times the best way to discuss the detail is with a laundry list. This bag has a metal mesh trim with transparent crystal studs, silver and bronze tone metal chain fringe, multicolored Swarovski crystal-studded fringe, chain-trimmed paneling, a shoulder strap and a gunmetal chain handle which can be tucked inside the bag if you don’t want to use it.
But here is my question: even with all the embellishments and knowing that this could be a great investment piece, is it worth the hefty price tag? Buy through Net-a-Porter for $2295.
