Rick Owens Buffalo Shopper Tote
An American living in Paris, Rick Owens designs are described as “glamour meets grunge”. They are a favorite of Madonna, Kate Moss and Helena Bonham Carter. His designs have edge, luxury and simplicity that are powerful and sexy all at once.
You get all of these details rolled into this deceptively simple tote. Rich heavy buffalo hide provides luxurious texture to the overall body of this bag. The detail of the stitching around the internal zippered pocket shows through on one side of the bag presenting an interesting and subtle design. The handles are smooth leather with no hardware. Subtle oval and square stitched detailing at the base of the handle provide another subtle and and edgy design element.
A roomy tote, it measures 21″ wide by 13.5″ tall and 6″ depth. A 9″ strap drop allows this to be carried on the shoulder. There is definitely more detail to this bag than you see at first glance! It takes skill and great craftsmanship to produce a bag of this quality and simplicity. At $1096.50, this is not a cheap tote, but it will definitely be yours for years and years for edgy, glamorous style!
