Like many of you, I was heavily skeptical about Burberry’s Fall 2014 runway bags. Many of them looked like hastily conceived art projects, painted in the brand’s studio by people who were clearly not painters by employment. At the time, the standouts were a few velvet-on-leather bags that looked much more purposeful and high-end than their painted counterparts, but does the Burberry Padlock Dome Satchel work outside of that context?

This bag feels busy when judged by the minimal standards that have overtaken the luxury accessories industry over the past few seasons, but as aesthetically aggressive bags go, it’s still kind of interesting. It reminds me of a thick, warm blanket that you might find at someone’s parents’ lake house in the woods, and I’m always partial to blanket prints. The mustard, black and beige colorway fits the look nicely, and although the finished product feels a little too rustic for my personal style, it’s an option that I could imagine being styled immaculately by someone with a very specific personal style.

This isn’t my bag, but I’m also not mad that it exists. If you feel strongly one way or the other, let us know in the comments.

Buy through Neiman Marcus for $2,795.
