For Dolce & Gabbana, the flap satchel has become something of a brand signature. We’ve all seen the Miss Sicily in everything from allover sequins to knitted wool, and now the Dolce & Gabbana Miss Rosa Satchel is here to bring some lightness to your heavy winter wardrobe.

This bag is technically a Pre-Spring 2011 piece and therefore won’t arrive until around the first of the year, but as long as you live in the Northern Hemisphere, that’s still plenty of time to pair it with winter knits and and dark colors. Just don’t put it anywhere near your dark-wash skinny jeans unless you want the entire back side to turn blue. (Not that I know this from experience or anything… Of course not… Who would be silly enough to do such a thing?)

What makes this bag such a brilliant winter options is the abundance (but not over-abundance) of grey trim. Instead of using tonal stitching and finishing for the edges of the leather, the designer used a medium grey that makes the look clearly appropriate for cold weather. It also doesn’t hurt that the creamy, ivory tone of the leather will coordinate perfectly with all your favorite cold-weather neutrals, no matter what they might be. If you’re not much of a jeans-wearer (and I’m certainly not), then this just might be your perfect everyday bag for winter. So long as you’re willing to ignore the dangling coin closures, that is. Buy through Nordstrom for $1925.

    i dunt laikit.. i lavit!!!
    but pls execute the dangleberries. (sorry if that was inappropriate)

  • Chris

    Love this! I wonder if the 2nd strap can be used to connect to the existing handle and make the bag more shoulder friendly…. Imagine this comes in an etoupe-ish color or a blush patent, um…yummy

    I love this color and have a hermes kelly in this color but the leather is more pebbled so no dark colors can rub on it…of course i have a white chanel that cannot be worn with dark colored clothes:( ….white color bags are gorgeous but one must be more careful Dolce bags are getting better and better (started buying them when they first came out) and their prices are not so nuts (although this one is expensive) and i’m glad they don’t have that big tag in the front…

    Pretty! Feminine yet sleek. The handle, though, looks a bit awkward – proportion wise. It seems like it is removable and can be replaced by a strap. Hopefully, the strap is in gray leather.

    Not bad, but somehow not my cup of tea. These coin closures… very strange.

  • edoardo

    Nothing interesting is present int his bag…

  • Lorie

    Love the color, but it’s a bit plain.

  • Stylista

    I love it! The white and the gold paired together gives it an almost regal feel, and the zippers just add to it. Fit for a modern queen!

  • Tangela

    Very nice but I would be worried about keeping it clean.

  • Vasaki

  • Cara

    Very sophisticated and ladylike! Love that both the gold & grey detailing is in just the right amount and doesnt overtake the bag. Cute handle.
