Chinese Laundry serves up a functional but ultimately unsatisfying accessory with the Synch.
There's no mystery about where the Synch got its name. Its drawstring gathers the synthetic fabric together, cinching it and creating subtle pleats. It's not a bad aesthetic element, but it hardly seems worthy of anchoring this shoulder bag. The crocodile embossed finish is also quite nice, but it's far too subtle to make any real impact. In combination with the Synch's fairly ordinary shape the elements amount to a shoulder bag which is easy to overlook.
Chinese Laundry does an admirable job of organizing its Synch, but it doesn't do enough to really change our minds. This shoulder bag is spacious and reasonably appointed with a trio of pockets, but that's really no more than other labels provide. When the most exciting part of a bag is its colourful interior lining, you know it's a disappointment.
At least the Synch is cheap, at just $29. It's rare to find a bag this size for that price. Personally I'd keep saving and indulge in a more substantial shoulder bag, but bargain hunters may find their needs met here.
