DKNY Crocodile Effect Leather Bag | Cool Blue Croc Clutch

Posted on: Feb 14

DKNY Crocodile Effect Leather BagDKNY is one of those lines that I want to like a lot more than I actually do. It does, after all, make affordable versions of current trends. But sometimes it doesn't quite hit the nail on the head. This croc effect leather clutch is a good example of why I feel so ambivalent towards the line.

The cobalt blue leather has such a bold, exciting color that embossing it with a cheesy croc print seems like such a waste. The texture would never pass for authentic reptile skin, and it's not over-the-top enough to be interesting as its own thing, so, frankly, why bother? This fabulous blue would have been just fine in plain old leather. It just didn't need the treatment.

The shape of the bag is fine, if a little ho-hum. Sure, a bag this bold and bright doesn't really need much to make it exciting, but it just looks like DKNY wasn't trying. The unusual shape of the fold over flap doesn't do much for me, and the giant central clasp is overdone and distracting. I just don't think the style is cohesive.

The only thing I really do like is the strap. It has a graduated width and cool chain accents. Unfortunately, while the bag is affordable at $185, I still don't think it's interesting enough to pay for.
