We’ve been talking a lot about Big Black Bags (BBBs) lately on the Purse Blog family of websites, and I’ve got another good specimen to throw on the heap: the Jack Rabbit The Atlantic Tote.
It’s got everything you could want in a giant, dark-colored carryall: lots of smooth, but not shiny, leather, minimal hardware, and enough size to make a statement. This bag is a little different, though, in that it’s a north/south style (for the uninitiated, that means it’s longer than it is wide). I’m of the personal belief that north/south bags are a lot harder to design than their east/west counterparts since they have a much larger propensity to look awkward and be difficult to carry, but I think that Jack Rabbit did a reasonably good job with this particular bag. It gets a little wider at the bottom to balance out the bag’s width and the handles also help with the proportion. All in all, a solid entry into the BBB wars. Buy through Bloomingdales for $450.
