Usually leather gimmicks are really not my thing, but we all divert from our traditional taste every now and then. Normally, I like to see the materials that a bag is made of without pretense or clever trickery altering their quality, since I suspect that that is how some designers get away with cutting corners and using mediocre leather.

I kind of like the gimmick that they used on the Tano Leave the Light On Shoulder Bag, though. The shimmery, distressed effect is just cool enough for me to forget my normal handbag rules.

When you zoom in, you can still see the soft and pebbled texture of the natural leather, so we’ll give this one a pass. Plus, the metallic effect is not one that you see often – the manufacturers call it bronze, but it looks like it’s in a very interesting territory between gold and graphite to me. Whatever it is, it’s a lovely and unexpected neutral that would pair with a lot of cold-weather clothing. Buy through Bergdorf Goodman for $375.
