As PurseBlog’s resident proponent of the bohemian style, I feel it’s my duty to introduce yet another Antik Batik style to you readers. This Antik Batik Ciena Big Bag is quintessentially boho, but manages to be rather un-messy and simple as far as the style goes. That’s quite a feat, no? Let’s take a look.

The bag is an easy messenger shape, if slightly rounded and loose. And, gasp, it lacks the ubiquitous fringing and beading and embroidery that one might find easily on a more traditional boho bag, like, oh, anything by JADETribe. Here, there’s not an ethnic print to be found.

Rather, it makes its mark with the easy shape, lovely dark pebbled leather, and funky design of mixed metal paillettes on the flap. The leather looks lusciously soft and moldable, a fitting contrast to the roughness of the paillettes. There’s no ethic print, but the metal certainly makes a pattern that holds its own. Buy through Shopbop for $508.

    i am trying to appreciate the embelishments on the bag, but i find it difficult to like it. The design looks like an island surrounded by a muddy water, the design looks unfinished just the like Palm Island, Maybe it could have been better if the embelished the whole thing.(fb)

    Not loving this one… The bag itself looks sloppy…with some sloppy beading added on top of it all. (fb)
