I am always intrigued by designers I don’t know much about. Last week I wrote about the Giorgio Brato Distressed Leather Bag. When I don’t know much about certain designers, I love to read the comments the post receives on the blog and on the Purse Forum. Granted, I always love reading the comments about each post, but when just being turned onto a new designer I am always eager to see if anyone else knows something more about the designer, the design or the line.

When I saw the Giorgio Brato Asymmetrical Pleated Bag I instantly wanted to touch my computer in hopes of actually feeling the leather. I without a doubt must get my hands on a Giorgio Brato handbag one of these days. Tell me if you disagree, but this leather looks not only 100% touchable but also down right gorgeous. Although some of you were less than impressed by the Distressed Leather Bag, do you find yourself liking this one a bit more? The pleating demonstrates the craftmanship and attention to detail put into the handbag. Pleating this kind of leather can look rushed if not done correctly, but I have no complaints with what I see. Double rolled handles, zippers inside and out prove that the bag doesn’t just look good, but is also functional. Buy though Shop Bop for $1,070.

    not bad….kind of like any old generic leather bag…nothing special.

    Very nice and the leather does look super soft. I just want to run my hands on it!! However, the price for a somewhat unknown designer makes me pause. I’d have to feel the quality of workmanship before I’d splurge on this one.

    Hmm… I’m not feeling this one. It’s blah.

    Nothing special. Kind of 80’s looking, maybe?

    Reminds me of a shar-pei – same wrinkles.
