Do I like the Foley + Corinna Metallic Supple Jet Setter Jr. Tote in general? Yes, yes I do. I’ve written about it previously, and I quite enjoy it, overall. Do I like the Foley + Corinna Metallic Supple Jet Setter Jr. Tote? No, no. Not at all. Why? Because, inexplicably, the trim does not at all match the body of the bag. The main section is a bright silver with a bit of distressing – no gold undertones, a few blue ones, and I bet it would look almost white in some light. And then there’s the trim. It’s roughly the color of masking tape and doesn’t seem to have anything at all to do with what the rest of bag is doing.
If they had managed to distress the bag a little more and let more of the tan show through under the silver, it might have worked. Or, if they had used a different kind of silver paint – one with more gold to it that would fit more appropriately with cardboard-colored surroundings. As it is, I’m very confused, and somewhat unhappy. This is a bag that looks chic and understated in almost any color or finish, and now they’ve gone and found one that I truly dislike.
