Forzieri embraces the quirky charm of the swinging sixties with this Capaf White Stitched Squares Handbag.
I've seen so many designers tackling retro style recently that it's almost the new modern. However I've never seen a label interpret it quite like this. White squares stitched onto the black leather give it a playful sense of style. I really appreciate the way these shapes work with this handbag's ultra long design, which has its own degree of quirk. It's undeniably retro, but it also feels much fresher than so many bags which channel the 60s.
On unzipping the top of the bag, I was tickled to see the hot pink suede lining. This soft material always makes a bag feel a little more luxurious, and the vivid shade is such fun. But Forzieri really hasn't done a lot with the interior. I think it needs more than a pair of pockets to keep this unusually sized space organized.
The short handles are another disappointment for me. They bring the right amount of retro cred to the design, but they won't make carrying such an awkwardly shaped purse any easier. I really wish we had the option of a longer strap for busy days.
It's got some flaws, but $495.60 doesn't seem like a lot to pay for a bag with so much personality, particularly when it's made from such luxurious materials.
