In the couple of years that Iâ€™ve kept an eye on American brand Foley + Corinna, it is evident that the house has transformed their leather goods and accessories from rebel chic to what we see here, clean and simple. Coming across the Small Letter Bag, it surprised me how this piece lacked the dangling tassels, bulky silhouette and the casual distressed leather that most Foley + Corinna accessories possess.
Whoever ditched those common features did a fantastic job in presenting an extra feminine design that is appealing to women of all age groups. Foley + Corinna finally took their shot at constructing a modern and sophisticated look, if you ask me, this looks very couture and it could be easily mistaken as being high-end designer. The rectangular body with the aid of a top flat handle provides a very mature appearance, yet the Cognac and Sapphire colors with a hint of gold toned hardware is both attractive and fun.
If you look close enough, the Sapphire portion of this piece actually consists of snake embossed panels, which come nicely concealed. Simple metal accents have been popular with designers such as Salvatore Ferragamo and Marc Jacobs, perhaps Foley + Corinna is ready to adapt a flattering closure to their handbags as well.
For a reasonable price tag of $395, you can discover this Foley + Corinna newbie via the online shops of: Shopbop
