We’ve been talking recently about how stock photos just do not do some bags justice, and this is completely the case with the J.Crew Editor Satchel. My friend recently purchased this bag and it looks so much different than this photograph. Here, the bag looks like it’s made out of some sort of pleathery plastic, the way bags look when they are clearly not leather but they obviously are trying to be (you know what I mean;). No, in real life the leather looks supple and is so soft to feel.
Now, my friend purchased this bag in “Fresh Melon,” which would not have been my choice because, as you know, I’m not a pink person. But that’s beside the point. The coolest feature of this bag is, in my opinion, the resin hardware. The long strap is kind of like a metal strap, but is much more innovatively chic and makes a really cute clinkety-clink sound that sounds subtly professional. I’d get it just for that chain. Who knows, maybe that why my friend did. Buy through J.Crew for $250 on sale.
