Bodhi Fiji Elastic Tote | Studded Zip Decorated Beige Tote

Posted on: Aug 12

Bodhi Fiji ToteI have to tip my hat to Bodhi. While other designers slavishly follow the trends, it consistently surprises. This Fiji Elastic tote is another unusual purse from this contemporary fashion house.

Its name takes us to the South Pacific, but this purse has a much more European feel to it. The elastic part of its name comes from the treatment of the tote’s top. The elasticized finish creates gathers and girly ruffles all around.

Another designer may have rested on its laurels, but not Bodhi. The central panel underneath this is decorated with a helping of heavy metal. Curved zips dart this way and that, mirroring the line of the studs above them. The combination of domed studs and flattened embossed ones is really interesting. I'm still not sure whether I like the variance, but it's caught my attention.

On another bag all those unusual details could become messy, but by using a creamy sand color Bodhi ensures the elements stay under control. They make what is underneath it all a fairly bog standard box tote really eye catching.

All too often designers want to charge us a packet for an unusual accessory, knowing that as we can't get it elsewhere we’ll pay a premium. But not Bodhi, who keeps this authentic leather bag reasonably priced at $348.
