Home decor impresario Jonathan Adler is know for his modern, unconventional and quirky interior aesthetic. Can he do the same with handbags? His Fall 2013 collection marks Adler’s strongest foray into accessories yet, and his aesthetic is evident, especially with this Jonathan Adler Medium Hex Handle Tote. When a designer from another area turns to handbags, his or her aesthetic is going to be different from those who are practiced in the art of the bag. It’s interesting to see someone with a design background outside of fashion turn to handbags, and it certainly gives Adler a unique perspective on designing.
Clearly, the main attraction on this bag is the top handle. After double-checking my math (it’s been a while since I took geometry), this hexagonal handle takes this ordinary satchel and transitions it into something more artistic. The interior is just as modern as the exterior, with a matching hexagonal pattern. Sometimes it only takes one detail on a handbag to attract your attention and make your heart beat a bit faster in lust, and Adler’s managed to do just that.
