Hot Newbie Purse Alert: The Dooney & Bourke Jumbo Handbags
Dear 20+ year olds – Finally DB has heard your call to put a hold on producing teen-targeted kiddy bags that feature cartoon drawings (for this line that is).
It seems like nowadays whenever Dooney & Bourke releases a new line it’s either a hit or a miss with me. It wasn’t too distant in the past that DB shocked all of their beloved (20+) fans with the introduction of the cartoon Bumble Bee Line, the sausage looking Emma Robert Bag, the cluttered Candy Handbag Line, the western Safari Purses, the painted fur Zebra collection, oh and not to forget the ice cream Ice Pop Line. I don’t know about you guys, but a couple of those lines (erm, most of those) I would not stroll down the street with even if you gave me a new purse.
So all cartoon images aside, DB listened and made this new designer purse line for you. Featuring the Jumbo signature on the canvas body, this bag is offered in the color black, blue jean, ivory, or light red. The Dooney & Bourke Jumbo Handbags are available in three sizes – Small (11.25″length x 4″width x 8.75″height) retails for $235, Medium (14.25″length x 5″width x 11.5″height) retails for $265, and the Large (16.75″length x 6.25″width x 12.5″height).
Let me here your opinions? Hit or Miss? What do you guys think of the new tamed down design for the new Jumbo Logo Dooney Bag?
