There’s another designer with a passion for owl critters on their designs. Upon viewing the Sherwood Owl Handbag by Kate Spade, it took me by surprise. What an unattractive handbag Spade created this season. I’ve seen critter accessories, and most are cute with head turning designs, but this top handle tote will turn heads in a not-so-great way.
The strong details and mixture of different textured leathers is admirable, but I wouldn’t want to carry around a tote sporting a vicious looking owl on it. It starts with those evil yellow eyes, and continues with that sharp metal beak. Grommets at each feather and those tiny-clawed owl feet at the base give me the creeps. Why so gloomy and serious, not cute and cuddly? We may never know. At least I’ll be passing by this piece at my local shops with no considerations for it at all.
Although its not my cup of tea, it might be the perfect find for the lady who can’t get enough animal prints on her handbags and clothing, and we all know somebody like that!
This funky Kate Spade tote can be purchased through: Saks Fifth Avenue for $425.
