I’m not much of a fan of denim. I have very little in my closet and I have very little patience for it in bag-form. Denim-look leather is a little bit better because at least it’s leather, but the look is not for me. From what I can tell, it’s not for most people that have commented on the various posts that have mentioned the trend.
I’m not going to rule out the possibility that it can be pulled off by someone out there, however, which is why I’m going to try to not say too many negative things about the Kooba Lana Denim Tote. My initial reaction was thoroughly negative, but I think that there might be something interesting here for someone with a thoroughly bohemian personal style.
If ever a denim handbag would work, it would be during warm weather – fewer people are wearing jeans when temperatures rise, which means that its easier to avoid unfortunate all-denim looks (which have a funny name, but I can’t use it because I go in trouble last time.) When paired with a breezy sundress and wavy, beachy hair, this bag might look ok. It’s all about context, people, and I can think of at least one in which this handbag wouldn’t be totally horrifying. Maybe this trend is just wearing me down. Don’t mistake that as me saying that I like the bag, however – I don’t. Buy through Bloomingdale’s for $295.
