I’ve had a limited attraction to Michael Kors handbags. I’m not the biggest fan of big hardware and shiny leathers. Don’t get me wrong, I’m a huge fan of MK designs. Each week, I eagerly watch him on Project Runway for his pithy remarks and slightly over-tanned looks of disgust. His clean and classic clothing styles really should be in my closet!
I’ve admired the Astor tote but haven’t been a big fan of the shiny leathers that have been used. Now, at NET-A-PORTER.COM it’s available in a yummy light-brown walnut colored suede! I am drawn to the combination of the soft tan tones contrasted with the rich dark brown leather handles and accents. The soft gold round studs contrast nicely with the softness of the suede. This bag exudes the subtle-classic luxury we’ve come to love in Michael Kors fashions. Hurray!
One of the wonderful surprises of this bag is that it isn’t simply a tote. The bag features a gold-tone, removable shoulder strap for hands-free carrying. There’s even loads of functionality in the interior with a zip-fastening interior pocket and four interior pouch pockets. The roomy size of 16″ x 12″ x 3″ will handle your laptop, iPad and then some. And at $450, you can’t go wrong with loads of beautiful design and function!
