Here I am, writing about yet another Burberry bag that I really like. Whatever different creative process they’ve got going on in their handbag line this season, they really need to stick with it. In fact, they probably need to give those people raises, because I can’t remember another season where I’ve looked twice at one of their bags. Their use of intricate texture and simple shapes theis season has been phenomenal, and I can’t wait to see if they continue it in the future.
The latest example is the Burberry Prorsum Leather DÃ©gradÃ© Tote. The only real gripe I have with this bag is the usability of the ombre color scheme. It’s somewhere between chartreuse and brown, which is beautiful to look at on its own, but might be hard to incoporate into an average wardrobe unless brown is your go-to neutral. It has the same square “scaling” effect as the Burberry Prorsum Willow Leather Clutch that we spoke of not long ago, and in this case, the dÃ©gradÃ© color scheme makes the texture look even richer. You know what I really wish they had done, though? A scarlet red-to-black ombre. I’d be typing in my credit card info right now if they had. Buy through Net-a-Porter for $2395.
