The problem with designing bags (and any other functional thing, I expect) is that not only do they need to look good, but there are certain physical attributes and abilities that cannot be ignored in order to make the bag more interesting to look at.
Too bad the folks at Foley + Corinna appear to have completely forgotten that while designing the Foley + Corinna Perforated Crossbody Bag. The bag itself isn’t terrible – the curvature at the bottom is a little much for how squat the body is, but it could be a lot worse in a lot of different ways. What I really question is the wisdom of putting so many perforations in such a wide, thin strap. Perforations, by definition, change how the material will distribute weight and give the strap innumerable points of weakness that wouldn’t be there otherwise. These points will likely cause the strap to stretch in odd ways and the bag to wear out more quickly than it would have. To that, I have only one word: fail. Buy through Saks for $575.
