I’m a big fan of gunmetal hardware in almost all instances. In fact, the color in general is one of my absolute favorites in many respects and I love how it goes with such a wide variety of other colors and patterns. I don’t love it on the Treesje Dylan Tote, however, which is a shame since it’s such a beautiful bag overall.

Treesje Dylan Tote

Because of the dark and varying shade of the wine-colored leather, it seems to me that a distressed silver or brushed nickel would have given the bag a bit more contrast and brought out the fine details even more. The bag’s studs almost get lost because of the small tonal difference between the leather and the hardware, and I’d love to see them come out a bit more. Don’t let my criticism mask the fact that I think the bag is beautiful overall, though. It looks like it would be a great shoulder bag that you could use every day, I would just change that one detail. Buy through Luna Boston for $595.

    Wicked bag. Treesje is so unique and well-made…can’t wait to get my next bag from them!

  • Eva

    Love this! The gunmetal hardware looks really edgy.

  • Rufina

    Bag is lovely and you are right-gunmetal does not fit well with this color of the leather. Still a lovely bag and I can not wait to buy me one of those puppies.

    I am holding this bag right now and I think this color works very well with gunmetal. Its very goth-vampiric in a way, very Twilight!

    Maybe its something that has to be seen in person!
    I personally like the dark blue with gunmetal version the best!

    It looks like the RM Devote Tote somewhat….at least to me.

    Just got this bag in the Oceano (blue) color. It is to DIE FOR! Nothing like the RM Devotee Tote. The hardware goes perfect with it. Reminds me of the quality of older Botkier bags…thick, rich leather. LOVE IT!

    I actually like the gunmetal and bordeaux combo, it makes it look really theatrical and, like the other commenter says, really gothic and vampiric.

    The Oceano is gorgeous as well, it has a more trendy and sophisticated feel to it. Something about blue leather screams trendsetter to me.

    Ooh, I think the hardware on this bag looks great (on all the Dylan bags). Maybe you just don’t like it so much against the bordeaux leather? I don’t love (like) every single Treesje bag, but I do like the Dylan bags :o)
