A bag with good texture can be hard to find. If it’s done well, it can easily make a bag one of the most unique and eye-catching options out there. If it’s not done well, things can start looking cheap really, really quickly.
As far as the ROMYGOLD Biker Slash Tote goes, I think it errs on the side of cool and interesting. The graphic white immediately sets a modernist tone, and the shape and size of the slashes takes that idea to the next level. I feel like it might be missing something, though, but I’m not quite sure what that might be.
I really like the body of this bag – as I mentioned, the combination of color and texture are ultra-modern and totally cool. You won’t find a great deal of bags that are rocking this aesthetic at the moment, and perhaps minimalism is the next big thing. In fact, it seems like a rather logical alternative to the preponderance of studs, fringe, ruffles and zippers that we’ve seen over the past few seasons. I simple bag with clean lines and modern texture might be just what the doctor ordered. Still, something could be better…maybe it’s the handles? Buy through ShopBop for $462.
