It’s rare that you find something that’s honestly unique in fashion – designers are equal amounts artists and collectors, and they borrow from each other with great regularity. Carlos Falchi has proven repeatedly that he doesn’t mind searching for inspiration a little further off the beaten path than some designers, and he’s struck a truly unique note with the Carlos Falchi Henna Tiger Snake Satchel.

I know that this isn’t a handbag that everyone will love, but that’s why I like it so much – it’s a distinctive statement of style and personality. The best bags are those that some people don’t quite understand, and this blue-and-white-on-chartreuse painted floral pattern certainly puts this satchel in a different realm.

The color combination is totally unexpected, but that’s why I love it. It takes a particular type of personality to pair chartreuse with royal blue, and fashion should be all about the reflection of something interesting about the individual that chose the pieces. This bag would probably be a little hard to pair with outfits (although if you wear a lot of neutrals, you could probably get some good use out of it), but just looking at it makes me smile. Sometimes, that’s enough, even if it’s not the kind of bag that you’ll use every day. Buy through Bergdorf Goodman for $1595.

    I think it looks like one of those Vera Bradley bags.

    Aaaaaah! My eyes! My eyes! 0_o

    is it hand painted? just beautiful painting i love it, but i dont like yellow bag T^T

  • Sofia Nolan

    so yeah, yellow goes terribly well with blue, but definitely not in this matter. besides, the canvas is wrong, that shiny aspect makes you think it`s cheap, and I bet it`s worth something

    This is, umm, unique and happy looking but I honestly like the one done in with the black/white henna print on brown/cream tiger snake better. For my taste the colors are more subdued and would go with many more of my outfits.

    Don’t really like the color combination – and it freaks me out that it is made of tiger snakeskin! (Had a few tiger snakes sighted around the area last Summer – maybe I should have grabbed some for a bag!)

  • missmargoo

    that ugly bag…horrible

  • Nola

    It’s “unique” all right…thank god!

  • Jane

    It is very unique which I like, but when I went to the website I saw the black and white one on the tiger snake skin. I like that one a little more because you really have to use your eyes and your hands to fully appreciate the henna painting.
