B. Makowsky Belted Multicolor ToteCorrect me if I’m wrong, but does this particular bag look really high-end and sophisticated to anyone else? Maybe I’m going nuts, but I think B. Makowsky may have really outdone themselves with the Belted Multicolor Tote.

It’s lines are clean, it’s hardware is chunky and shiny, and the colors are muted and well-coordinated. The bag has almost a nautical feeling to it, and combined with the light, muted colors, it would be a perfect spring and summer weekend tote. I like the grey-brown on top so much that I’d actually consider buying the tote if it were made only out of that color, and liking any sort of neutral is really out-of-character for me. They’ve got me intrigued, though, and I’m actually a bit surprised. This brand usually has fabulous, soft leather, but they’re not known for their overall design aesthetic. If this is any indication, keep an eye on them in the future. Buy through Nordstrom for $268.

    saw this in macys today, it looked cheap and reminded me of those fake multi-color striped “d&g” bags.

    I like the idea of colorblocking on a bag, but these colors fall flat for me. I can get excited about neutral bags, just not these neutrals together. Also, I think the chunky-ness of the hardware looks a little off balance, there’s a lot going on by the handles, and yeah I’m going to have to agree that this imbalance makes it look a little cheap. I’m going to have to disagree with you on this one…although I definitely agree that this brand doesn’t usually take this much of a “risk” with their design, maybe next time it will work a little better.

    I agree with the prior comments. the colors definitely do not work for me and the leather does seem very high quality. that being said i have liked some of their other bags in the past


    I have happened to be seeking all around for that stuff. Luckily I uncovered this on Bing.
