Dooney & Bourke New Regatta Bag Collection
What can I say about DB? Their recent lines have caused many of us to scratch our heads and wonder who in this company would think that these horrid designs would actually appeal to handbag lovers? For example, remember the Candy line? Or how about the Texas collection? And you couldn’t have forgotten about those sausage-shaped Emma bags. But anyways, Dooney is at it again with their new Regatta line. Although I am not a fan of this collection, I must say that it definitely isn’t as dreadful as the others we’ve seen.
The Regatta bags by Dooney & Bourke come in white, red and blue. They feature a white leather trim, which is another thing that I’m not crazy about. Currently, this collection is offered in about seven different handbag styles, with one being travel size, and there are a few accessories to match. Shown above is the Large Sac w/Twisted Strap and it retails for $255. I think this collection looks a little sporty because of the bold emphasis of “DB” and “75″. It’s almost like DB is trying to dress up some bags in their own jersey or something. So which social/age group is this suppose to appeal to? The patriotic sporty chic who loves bags? What do you think of Dooney’s new Regatta line?
