Rebecca Minkoff Mini MAB Stripped Linen BagYou all know that here at Purse Blog, we love Rebecca Minkoff. So while we’ve reviewed many of her bags, especially the MAM (read our view of the MAM in Deep Purple here) I still wanted to write about this Rebecca Minkoff Mini MAB Striped Linen Bag. I adore this bag! To me, it pretty much screams “SUMMER!” but in a nice, sophisticated way, not in an obnoxious, ripped-booty-shorts-showing-off-your-bikini kind of way. When you think of the styled jet setter, with her espadrilles, white linen pants, and silk headscarf, this bag fits right in.

The linen combined with the leather is an interesting combination, yet it looks totally perfect, noticeable yet refined. Plus there are little details, like the protective metal feet on the bag’s base. But even though I get this cosmopolitan, upper echelon-type vibe from this purse, it would also fit in perfectly with any flowy summer dress and sandals. And massive sunnies, of course. Buy through Nordstrom for $440.

    I normally love RM bags to a fault, but this one doesn’t do it for me. For some reason, it looks a bit cheap to me. Maybe it’s one of those you just have to see in person to appreciate.

    This is not RM”s best work…the color combo is off, and I agree with Mandy — it looks rather cheap. I’m not feeling it, especially not for this price.

    The color combination reminds me too much of a vintage french deck chair.

    I really like this bag. I think the muted colours are very sophisticated, and I agree with Anna, it is very summery.

    This is amazing. I had never sen this until this post! I was thumbing through RM post and it really caught my eye. It is such a fabulous combination of fabric and leather and hardware. The colors go together flawlessly, what a great great great bag!

    Just bought this bag at Nordys Rack yesterday. Fell in love. EXPECAILLY for only 122 dollars :) So excited to start my summer wardrobe with this awesome bag!
