Diane von Furstenberg takes us back to the '70s with this relaxed yet refined Kaitlin Messenger.
Rather than appearing like a fashion throwback, this messenger is right on trend. Seventies style is enjoying a bit of a renaissance at the moment, but rarely is the decade interpreted so well. The leather mesh body is a striking complement to the bag's warm brown suede sides. The messenger's relaxed shape is perfect for daytime wear, but the unusual finish and high quality materials ensure it won't look out of place once the sun goes down.
The Kaitlin is luxuriously large and well appointed with a collection of open and secure pockets, both inside and out. These aren't lined in leather, as we might expect at this price point, but if we're careful they should survive daily use. We also probably deserve protective metal feet for our money, but they're another glaring omission. We'll need to watch where we set it down to avoid premature wear and tear.
I'd make the effort to protect the Kaitlin though, because at $795 she's no throwaway purse. This is the kind of bag you'll want to keep using long after the current celebration of the seventies is over.
