We mentioned way back when the emerging trend for perforated bags, and now it’s coming full circle. Back in the fall when the trend was just being birthed, you may have scoffed. “Perforation? Who wants a bag with holes in it?” Well, remember the uber-popular Louis Vuitton neon and perforated collection? I think that answers your question, you disbeliever, you.


Rebecca Minkoff has already embraced the trend with the Embrace Perforated Hobo (ha! it’s a pun, it happens to the best of us), but now she’s delivered pure pinpricked perfection with the Rebecca Minkoff Perforated 3 Zip Rocker Bag. The deep purple, besides being my favorite color, is dark enough to somewhat conceal the perforation but light enough to allow spectators to notice that there’s some sort of texture going on. A closer look, then, reveals the perforation. And the gunmetal hardware works smashingly, the smokiness of the zippers playing off the subtle brightness of the leather.

Well played, Minkoff. The cinchers are the tassels hanging off the zipper pulls- a staple of the 3 Zip Rocker bags but welcome nonetheless. Peer closely, and you’ll notice that these tassels and the strap are perforated to match the purse. Buy through Shopbop for $195.

    wow, someone’s making their stuff in china! cheap cheap cheap! so tired of seeing the same bags over and over again.

  • Leah

    I second that! I want to stimulate the economy but no one’s inspiring me :)

    I don’t normally like perforated bags but this one works. The color, shape, and texture work well together.

    I too am yawning at this one…nor am not happy at all with the direction that this company has taken, either aesthetically or in terms of production. I wonder if designers ever realize that we are intelligent enough to be informed of such things.

    Love this color!!

    The bag looks great, the color is almost raspberry!

    FYI: China does not equal CHEAP. Just like Italian goods, you can get all quality levels out of every country (even Italy has some lousy product), it is the components and the factories used that makes the difference.

    I get it if you want to support US made goods to support our own economy, though hard to find they are out there, but don’t bash an entire country because of this antiquated stereotype.

    BTW: I am not the least bit Chinese here. I used to work in product development for a major retailer.

    I like MOST of Rebecca Minkoff’s designs, and I like this fun little bag. I think designers have to repeat their popular lines in different colors or fabrics as buyers don’t all like the same things.
