Dolce & Gabbana Miss Martini Flap Bag

I’ve got to say at least one nice thing about this bag: Dolce & Gabbana, I like your enthusiasm.

No, actually, I love it. Because the kind of chutzpah it takes to put together seven (that I can count) types of fuzzy animal print onto one bag is the kind of chutzpah that it takes to occasionally create a stinkin’ awesome bag. But at this point, ladies and gentlemen, I have but one caveat: the Dolce & Gabbana Miss Martini Flap Bag is not that bag.

Oddly enough, I think that what this bag suffers from the most is not that there are too many patterns, but that all of the patterns are too similar. Instead of creating contrast and visual interest, they all sort of meld together into one big tan animal print glob, and the result is decidedly “craft store.”

Not that it would have been any better had they added in, say, zebra print or snake print. This idea was more or less dead in the water from the get-go, but if it takes making a thousand ridiculous bags to finally get to one that’s genuinely great, then I’m okay with that. Nothing ventured, nothing gained. Buy through Nordstrom for $1075.

    OK, Halloween is over. This, my friends, is a Frankenstein bag and not suitable for any other day. I really expect to find neck studs somewhere on this bag.

    Wow this bag is quite a statement! Im not sure on the patchwork effect but I love the mixed animal prints.

  • Handbag Lover

    I like this bag. It would be cute with one animal print.

    I disagree. I love the design and print. Just right for a little zing for a night on the town.

    I would wear this everyday if it were bigger. But, I wear animal print almost everyday.
