It appears as though Michele, a brand famous for watches, has begun to branch out a bit. I’m not sure exactly when this started – I remember seeing one of their bags about six months ago but haven’t seen anything since. Until today, that is, when I stumbled up on the Michele Collins Flap Leather Shoulder Bag. And although it’s not my color, it does have several things going for it. What are those, you ask? Well I’m about to tell you (and yes, I’m feeling a bit writer’s-block-y today, why do you ask?)
Although it wouldn’t surprise me if I was largely alone in this sentiment, I quite like the bag’s shape. I’ve always been a fan of hobos that take on a decidedly east-west proportion, and this one does it with a lot of outward style. Not only is the flap oversized, but the bag underneath mirrors its shape (and is fashioned of the same soft-looking, chocolate-colored leather). The strap’s size makes it look like it would fit snugly on the arm without slipping off, and the overall effect is tailored enough for the office but slouchy enough for the weekend. The price isn’t bad for such a versatile bag, either. Buy through Saks for $495.
