Teal has always been one of my favorite bag colors. It’s vibrant enough to be considered a bright, but it’s not bright enough to be offensive or garish. And most people like blue, so teal tends to get lumped into that as well.
Which is why I like the Francesco Biasia Emily IV Crinkled Leather Tote so much. It’s a beautiful color, it’s all leather, and it’s priced very fairly – plus, who can’t use a roomy tote from time to time?
At $198, I can’t help but think that this is would be a really great alternative to all the Longchamp bags that I saw carried around campus when I was in college. The shine might be a bit much, but I think that it would soften with a bit of wear, much like Balenciaga motorcycle bags. Plus, when pretty average Marc by Marc Jacobs nylon totes are going for the same price, doesn’t it make more sense to choose leather? Buy through Bloomingdale’s for $198.
