We’ve written about Foley + Corinna’s fabulous line of City bags so many times that it just can’t be counted. They’re just shaped so well – they look easy and effortless, everything that a proper blase hipster or uptown girl wants to be. And this latest version is also miniature, like the shrunken leopard City Tote I wrote about recently.
But what’s newer and edgier about this Foley + Corinna Dumond Disco City Studded Leather Cross Body Bag is that it’s studded – but only slightly. Rather than just taking the same road as many handbag designers by splashing studs all over their bags, this bag does it sparingly and in an innovative manner. The studs function as the bag’s hinges, which makes them look utilitarian but in the most glam way possible, of course.
In short, this is the most sophisticated City Tote that I’ve seen made – it takes the classic shape and twists it just a tiny bit by adding the gold pyramid stud hinges and gives shape by adding subtle stitching. Well, played Foley + Corinna. Well played. Buy via Bloomingdale’s for $245.
