Lately I’m really attracted to uniquely shaped bags- anything that’s not the normal square tote or rectangular clutch, if you will. This See by Chloe Sand Glazed Suede Bag fits the bill quite nicely. While it’s not magnificently sculptural or completely out-of-this-world (like perhaps a dodecahedron bag would be; oh come, I can dream, can’t I?), it has a shape not normally seen.

It’s a play on the normal mini-messenger cross body, sure, but it reminds me of a specialized hard binocular case. Do you see it? I guess this See by Chloe bag is partly for all the fashionista bird-watchers out there, and those who envy the cute shape of their binocular bags. Well, most likely that’s not the case, but it’s fun to think of it in that way.

Luckily, this bag would be at home in the forest or park and at a swanky evening party. The tassel is just understated enough so that the texture merely brushes your eyes rather than overwhelming the bag, and the bitty gold sphere is just enough to brighten up the black. Plus, it has a circular zipper- admit it, that’s just really cool. Buy through Net-a-Porter for $265.

    It looks kinda like the Wicked Witch of the West’s purse, but I like it. The tassel is good.
