Alright, help me out folks, it is time to weigh in on a bag that I just can’t seem to wrap my head around. I found myself totally and utterly confused when I came across the Bulga Hamilton Studded Leather Flap Tote. There are aspects I can appreciate and then others that I think totally miss the mark.

Bulga Hamilton Studded Leather Flap Tote

First of all, it is pretty clear that this is the kind of bag that will appeal to only a select group of handbag lovers. I saw the white version before I saw the black and the white is a huge turn off. The black option is a bit better, but not much. If you like it, I say go for it, but it looks a bit sloppy to me. In fact, it kind of reminds me of a shaggy dog. The studded flaps almost look like leather swatches simply thrown together. The asymmetrical aspect of the bag is admirable, but again, misses the mark. Double shoulder straps make perfect sense for this large tote, but that is about all that makes sense. Anyone else think differently? Buy through Bloomie’s for $625.

    I usually like Bulga — but this is just too “arts and crafts. Sorry. FAIL.

    I agree this bag is awful. I am not a fan of leather bags where the designers cut the leather and leave the edges raw and ragged. It looks messy and unfinished. I wish the edges had a more feminine feeling to them.


    I really like this bag. Looks fun and different and I like that.
