Burberry Haymarket Woven Warrior Bag | Metallic Gold Slouchy Drawstring Handbag

Posted on: Oct 2

It often feels like if you've seen one Burberry plaid purse, you've seen them all. I start to long for something different. Then I see Burberry stray from that classic formula, and I yearn for those slightly boring bags!

The designs may not be revolutionary, but Burberry does the preppy plaid thing well. When the British label decides to be daring, it invariably falls apart. If you needed further proof, just look at this Haymarket Woven Warrior bag.

Woven leathers and drawstrings are the domain of casual purses. Glitzy metallic gold always looks ready for disco night. Combine these extremes and you might hope for a bag that's versatile enough to travel from day to night. But here the unexpected mix just results in a purse that doesn't readily suit any situation, or it's warrior name for that matter. Can woven fabric ever strike fear into the heart of any enemy?

The gold finish is just a little too brassy, and the trim too chunky. Drawstrings are always fiddly, especially when combined with a magnetic closure. The shoulder strap might be adjustable, but that matters little when the maximum drop is a measly six inches. I don't mind the interior, with its practical canvas lining and zippered pocket, but I'm clutching at straws.

I'm sure this shoulder bag will appeal to someone who likes their accessories large and loud, but personally I can think of much better ways to spend $1795.
