Above, you might see the latest designer handbag for spring 09’, but what I really see a life jacket. Seriously, can you guys see the resemblance? The silhouette of the bag which appears to be inflatable, the rounded collar opening, the adjustable drawstrings detail?! I say Dolce & Gabbana got their inspiration for this piece while they were boating around somewhere. The Waikiki Jenna Shoulder bag is indeed an awkward looking bag, and definitely not your typical tote bag. I’m curious on how you’d wear this piece, unfortunately, Nordstrom (dot com) didn’t include modeling pics. Clearly the detachable strap is worn over the shoulder, but what about the giant opening up front, is it meant for the crook of the arm, or can it fit on the shoulder? Whatever the case, it does seem pretty comfy.
More bag details includes a magnetic closure, supple D&G leather, and an amazing 20” x 20” x 4” dimensions. You can find the Waikiki Jenna bag in fun florescent colors of pink and light green. Personally, I’m not feeling the style as it’s too out of the ordinary for me, but this seems like the perfect bag for the trendy Fashionista whose in search of something new and fun.
