Salvatore Ferragamo Studded Jazz SatchelIt’s rare that I see a technique that I haven’t seen used somewhere before. After all, I spend 40 hours a week (sometimes more, depending on how inefficient I am) looking at handbags; if a weird leather trick or a trim idea or a shape is out there, I’ve probably come across it out of professional necessity at some point. To a certain extent, there is nothing new under the sun – designers rip off each other and their own brands’ design history as much out of necessity as anything.

Which is part of the reason that I like the Salvatore Ferragamo Studded Jazz Satchel: the petal effect of the cut leather is not something you or I see every day. It’s incredibly intricate (and for the price, I certainly hope it was done by hand) without taking away from the essential function of the bag, which is a trick that not all designers execute skillfully. Usually I’m not a fan of brown, but in this case, keeping the color neutral and unobtrusive was the wiser decision. Although, now that I think of it, the tiny studs are silver – wouldn’t this bag be cooler in black? It looks less industrial this way, though, and maybe that will appeal to a wider customer base. Still, black version? Please? Or maybe not, since it’s so hideously expensive that I can’t buy it anyway. Buy through Luisa Via Roma for $3845.

    That’s a work of art. However, only an art collector would have the money to own one.

    Loooooooove this. Won’t buy it though. I am still living the Recessionista Life — not the I Got Gansta Money Life. Oh well. The good times will roll again soon I hope.

    This is a great looking bag. The petal effect of the leather is very pretty. The price is INSANE, though! I do not think it is realistic at all when the economy is the way it is. Still, nice to look at!

    I bought this lovely bag two years ago and am not happy with it. Although it is beautiful to look at it is not so beautiful to handle it. It bends the funny  way; the top flap doesn’t have a metal like inside to keep the bag straight horizontally, it is soft so the bag is bending inside, does not keep a beautiful shape of a tote….thinking of inserting the metal inside the flap. Bought it trough LouisaviaRoma, so did not see how it looks . Disappointing as it was my first Ferragamo handbag.
