Burberry gives a bit of shine to its traditional check bag with this patent leather tote.
I had grown tired of Burberry's famous tan nova check print, so I was thrilled to see this sleeker alternative. With too much gloss patent leather can look cheap, but the check print tempers that. There's something so striking about the contrast of black on black; it's classic but that bit more interesting than basic black.
While the finish appeals to me I'm not completely sold on Burberry's execution. The ties allow us to cinch in the sides of the tote, but they also seem a bit aimless hanging down like that. The tote's slouch makes it look casual, but I'm not sure that's what a patent leather bag like this deserves. A bit more structure would have made it seem a bit more ladylike and elegant, with the kind of sophistication befitting its $895 price tag.
This tote isn't the perfect bag, but with Burberry creating so many purses that felt way under par I'm enthusiastic about the way the line's developing. This is definitely a step in the right direction.
