Sometimes I think about where designers are going to go next with new handbags. I mean, to me (and clearly, I am not a designer), it seems like you get to a certain point and then just start recycling ideas. But every time I find myself thinking about this, I am reminded why other people are designers; they are able to continue to reinvent themselves and their lines. Megs covered the Jalda Pink Croc Clutch a while ago, and recently I’ve found myself becoming more and more interested in the line.

The Jalda Washed Lambskin Annette Handbag intrigues me. To be honest, the first thing that caught my eye was the zipper. Sure, the goldtoned double chain handle is shimmery, but how often do you see a handbag with a center zipper? Not that often right? I really like the look of the washed lambskin soft grey leather. Now add to it the center zipper and double chain handle – you have an eye catching bag. I am still a tad worried about the zipper. I wouldn’t want to open up the bag in a hurry and have my stuff begin to fall out. However, I want to believe that the thought which went into the bag took this worry into account. Either way, I still find myself leaning towards the side of liking this bag. If you want to give it a try, get your hands on it through Bag Borrow or Steal.

    With the way bags bend in the middle, wouldn’t it be impossible to open and fish something out when the bag was on your shoulder? It is a nice looking bag aside from the chain.

    This just doesn’t do it for me. I look at the shape with the zipper down the middle and I see a butt.
