I love when I stumble across a new designer where I continue to be pleasantly surprised. This is how I feel about Kale handbags. I hadn’t heard much about the line before this week, but as I continue to look at the handbags a little more closely, I have to say, I like what I see. The Kale Chilton I Shoulder Bag was a breath of fresh air. No, it’s not anything fancy. There aren’t any out of this world bells and whistles, but I think the bag is perfect for day to day and even night time use. The walnut washed lambskin looks soft yet sturdy. This certainly looks like a handbag that will age gracefully. The brasstone hardware offers just the right amount of accent along the extended leather handles. Usually, I am not sure how I feel about extended handles. I feel like they either fail miserably or totally work out – no middle ground. Here, the handles look great. Now, I know I said the bag didn’t have any crazy bells and whistles, but how about this: fuschia suede lining. Brilliant. Buy through Bluefly for $417.
