I thought we had seen Rebecca Minkoff‘s popular Morning After and Morning After Mini Bags in just about every iteration you can think of – studded, embossed, bicolor, bimaterial, zippered, riveted – but it looks as though there was one option that we missed – quilted. Luckily for us, the fine folks at RM didn’t forget about it, and we’re here to present the Rebecca Minkoff Quilted Morning After Mini Bag
When done correctly, quilting imparts a wonderful sense of depth and texture onto a bag, and Minkoff has done well with this version of the bag that made her famous. The flat leather accents provide a nice visual alternative to the quilting, and the sparse domed studs add to the on-trend military feel of this bag.
The functional delights of this particular shape are well-documented, and its won Minkoff a lot of fans. This iteration isn’t self-conscious or over-designed, and it’ll only look better as the leather softens up and starts to sag. The gold hardware is what really makes it, though – if silver had been chosen or the studs forgone entirely, it wouldn’t be nearly the bag that it is. Buy through Zappos for $534.
