Rebecca Minkoff has a new shape for her Fall 2009 Collection. Introducing the Rebecca Minkoff Darling Shoulder Bag. It’s soft, slouchy, and it has an intriguing crescent shape. Nope, there’s nothing boxy about this “darling” new style. What I find most interesting about this bag is the tassel zipper pulls that can be found on either side. Now Rebecca Minkoff is not really known for doing tassels, so this was definitely something unexpected. But, personally, I think they are kinda cute. They give this bag a rocker-chic vibe without the employment of studs. Plus I love the idea of exterior pockets with vertical zippers. They make wonderful places to keep keys and cell phones! However, I do find the zippered belt that encircles the middle of the bag a bit more unusual. It isn’t necessarily bad, it just looks a bit out of place. I think the bag would look a tad sharper if the belt was plain leather instead and perhaps with a larger, more ornamental clasp. Overall I find the Rebecca Minkoff Darling Shoulder bag a wonderful addition to her collection. Heck, it even reminds me of Botkier a little bit and it just so happens that that is a good thing!
The Rebecca Minkoff Darling Shoulder Bag measures 14″ x 10″ x 5″ and it retails for $495. It is currently available for Pre-Order at Luna Boston!
