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.
