Rebecca Minkoff Henri Tote
Featured in A Fall Ride by Rebecca Minkoff, the Henri Tote is one of the brand new styles for Fall 2008. This particular bag grabbed my attention while I was checking out all of the new stuff Rebecca Minkoff had to offer. The bag has a unique appearance that still stays true to the typical style of this designer. It is similar in size and shape to the Matinee. However it lacks the little “ears” on the ends and has replaced them with zippered pockets instead. In fact, the bag almost reminds me of a gym bag. Don’t those pockets on the ends look like they are meant to hold your ear buds and iPod? Maybe your spare socks could go inside the other one?
Alright, I’ll be serious now. The Rebecca Minkoff Henri Tote may not be the most typical-looking of handbags. But you can rest assured that it is roomy, functional, and constructed of the ultra soft leather that the designer is known for. The bag measures 15″ x 7″ x 7″ and has a zippered main compartment. The double handles and detachable shoulder strap give this bag convenience and versatility. It retails for $675 and is available in Dark Brown over at shopbop.com.
