Winter is upon us, with temperatures that chill us to the bone, but fret not – resort is starting to hit stores. Every season, I wrack my brain trying to make sense of the timeline that brings bikinis into stores in January, but it’s not dictated by the same logic that the rest of us use. Even though we are in the middle of a cold streak in NYC, Dolce & Gabbana just released a new resort bag that hit Net-A-Porter late last week.

I love resort season because all I can think about is perfect getaways to warm tropical locations. The ideal beach bag is a large shopper, and the Dolce & Gabbana Miss Kendra Straw Shopper is an attention-grabber. From the Spring 2013 collection, this bag is covered in paper-thin multi-colored raffia. But our question is, what do you think of this bag? Buy via Net-A-Porter for $1,895.

    busy and expensive!

    Utterly Hideous. Looks like a hippie’s shag carpet. Don’t even get me started on the price.

    like a pre-production muppet that got recycled and made into a bag!!

  • Margo

    Way too expensive for a bunch of clown colored straw! I swear, these designers must be laughing themselves all the way to the bank with some of the concoctions they put on their shelves. They MUST find it comical that people would buy some of these designs! It’s like a child grabbed a bunch of crayons, drew a picture, and they turned it into a bag.

    Cheap and tacky. Just awful!

  • Fiona-Brasil

    Too expensive but funny for the beach.

  • I surprisingly find myself interested in this bag. I don’t particularly like it, but I find it quite interesting and I can picture it on the beach grabbing everyone’s attention. It is too expensive for a straw bag though.

    Cute. I actually really love the colors and texture. But, it’s a bit expensive for a shredded raffia beach bag.
