Extra stiff and bringing in some serious bling is the Two-Textured Leather Satchel by Christian Dior. A feminine crescent shaped shoulder bag is produced with an assortment of pleated pebbled and crocodile textured leathers. You either love, hate or simply don’t mind the array of different leathers, but what stands out above all has got to be the numerous amount of studs and hardware found on this single piece. Over decorated with grommets and buckles, I can’t decide whether I find this piece to be tasteful or tacky. I’m the kind of Bagista that likes hardware and shine on my handbags, but designers do tend to go overboard every once in a while on décor, and unfortunately, I think this bulky satchel happens to be yet another victim of this abuse.
After multiple views and never ending grommet appliqué, I’ve decided this bag is a nay in my book. Somehow, the excessive décor tends to cheapen the value of this $2,950 couture satchel. Ladies what’s your input on this handbag, would you buy this?
