One of my favorite quotes by Coco Chanel is:
Luxury must be comfortable, otherwise it is not luxury.
To me that means that my favorite French Sole ballet flats are luxurious, and those overpriced stiletto’s that I can’t walk in are not luxury at all (just expensive). It means that a classic dress with a great fit is luxury and the newest trend that has you feeling like you’re bandaged up (no matter who the designer or what the price) is not.
A luxurious handbag needs to be made of soft leather
Like the Dylan medium tote with those great gunmetal accents from Linea Pelle. I’m a big fan and have been a big fan of Linea Pelle for a VERY long time, and this bag has been on my “must have” list. With a luxury bag it’s about the feel and the versatility.
I made the video so that you could see how luxurious that leather really is. The color of this bag is Malachite and the details (studding and rings) are in a gunmetal (in the video I stated that the color was gunmetal – my bad).
On the INSIDE.
It’s got a zippered pocket, as well as two open pockets, perfect for a cell phone, and whatever you need to grab quickly. It’s also got a ring to attach your keys to. The lining is a brown and beige zebra print. The strap (shown crossbody style) can be adjusted to a shorter length and it can be removed completely if you want to carry the bag by it’s handles.
it’s ALL about that soft, supple, EXQUISITE garment washed Italian leather. I LOVE this color bag, because it really goes with everything that I own. Of course your core wardrobe colors may be different than mine, and
it’s also available in:
- limited edition hunter green
- and of course the malachite grey shown above
