We’ve seen little from and heard even less about Jack Rabbit Collection, but every time I see one of their bags, I find myself impressed in one way or another. What they seem to do really well is take a simple line or a simple idea, tweak it just so, and make it look new and interesting without making it any more complicated than it needs to be.
And that’s exactly what they did to make the Jack Rabbit Collection Silver Springs Shoulder Bag such a winner. (more…)
In the past, I’ve always enjoyed that Jack Rabbit Collection always makes an attempt to tweak traditional bag structures just a bit. Inventiveness is always to be applauded, even if it doesn’t always turn out particularly well. After all, you never know what will work until you find out what doesn’t. Most of their stuff in the past has worked pretty well, although I’m not sure if the Jack Rabbit Collection Buff Easy Rider Hobo does.
On the one hand, I like the color and I like the leather, which somehow manages to look both soft and structured. I would have preferred silver hardware, but I can get over it. The main issue Is the handle and bag opening. The severe V-shape is surely supposed to be the bag’s main design feature, but it may be too acute of an angle and too deep of a plunge to work. It seems light it goes so far down that it detracts from the bag’s usable space, and it may be difficult to swing your arm under such a short handle. I give them an A for effort, but a C- for execution. Buy through ShopBop for $598.
