Stephane Verdino Metallic Messenger
Looking for something different and eye catching? I think I’ve found a solution over at Saks (dot com). The Metallic Messenger Bag by Stephane
Verdino is really something else. It’s that in your face color that brought this bag to my attention, as for the designer himself is somewhat new to large specialty stores, such as Saks. Launching his collection in 2006, Stephane Verdino is known for styling bold and logo-less handbags in attempt to give off a luxurious feeling. The truth is, I don’t know much about this French designer, and I do believe that a luxury brand appeal is his intention, but I just can’t see this “luxurious” attempt on this piece. The shimmering metallic hue is fun, but other than that, I can’t imagine actually wearing this piece. Maybe it’s the fact that it’s looks a bit “cheap”, as in something I could find in a discounted rack store. Other details found on this piece include, a front flap with no closure, stud details and no lining… ? Surprisingly, this tacky messenger bag retails at a pricey $475! Ladies, what’s your input on this Metallic Messenger, and most importantly, would you wear this?
