When I think of Burberry, I think of very sophisticated and refined designs. Perhaps some studs or a little bit of texture will find there way in there, but what I have here is something that falls somewhat outside the norm. At least in Burberry terms, that is. It is charming and whimsical, two things I would not normally associated with this designer. Take a look for yourself, I think you will be surprised with the Burberry Velvet Appliqué Dome Bowling Bag as well. Hopefully, it is a pleasant one like it was for me!
According to Burberry’s official website, this bag was inspired by traditional rug designs. When I look at this bag, I really don’t get that. Personally, I think this bag looks both woodsy and crafty. You know, like the quilted appliqué wall hangings with bunnies and owls on them. The orange and black leather are definitely a fall-ish palette. The velvet appliqués also add some texture in what I consider to be a cool weather material. Geometric patterns offer a lot of interest, but what really caught my eye were the leaf appliqués at the bottom. They help steer this bag away from “Halloween” territory. Yep, this is definitely a bag that should wait until the cool, crisp air returns in the fall. Don’t be afraid to snap it up now though. It was apparently quite popular over at Net-A-Porter and is already sold out there.
