Donna Karan Modern Pisces Soft Tote
I was rather nice to the Donna Karan Modern Aries Bag a while back and most of you that commented thought it was nice. I happen to still like that bag. It has a different appeal, it is rather simple, but the price is exorbitant. Now, Donna Karan is designed by Peter Speliopoulos, a talented former Cerruti designer, yet Donna Karan herself still contributes little subtleties or even entire new creations.
So which mastermind was behind this bag? Unfortunately, the Donna Karan Modern Pisces Soft Tote is totally simplistic, almost resembling a large potato sack. There is not much ingenuity, not much imagination, not much to this bag at all other than the hefty price tag. I am sure if I went to see the bag in person, actually felt the very soft leather, I would give a mini ooh or ahh. But for $1100 I expect more. Now if you all have been reading Purse Blog for a while, you know that I enjoy toned down bags, I enjoy the simplistic, but this really is too simplistic, even for me. I don’t doubt that the quality is great, that the leather is divine, that it would look good and have a nice slouch on my shoulder, I just can not bring myself to really liking it. So what do you think? Buy through Saks for $1,195.
