Fossil Jesse Patchwork Tote | Bright Colored Tribal Handbag

Posted on: Jul 26

Fossil Jesse ToteIn general if you asked me my opinion about patchwork bags, I'd tell you they're passé. They've had their day in the sun, but in 2011 they're just not chic. The Jesse from Fossil does nothing to convince me that patchwork has become sophisticated, but funnily enough I love it anyway!

After all, the Jesse's not trying to be anything other than a cute and casual bag. Its vibrant geometric patches create a bold tribal design. The use of pretty pink ensures it's not very authentic, but I can't say that I mind too much. It's playful and feminine, and just what such a simply shaped tote needs. The pale purple tassel seems a bit out of place, but thankfully it's easily removable.

The interior is spacious but well appointed, with open pockets for gadgets and a zippered one for holding valuables securely. I'd have preferred a zippered closure rather than the magnetic one, as it would have enhanced the bag's security, but really I'm nit-picking here.

I wouldn't stay this bag's a steal at $128, as it's only made from coated canvas, but I don't think it's a bad buy either. The Jesse is a relatively affordable and surprisingly modern take on patchwork. I can't see it leading a revival, but it's still lots of fun.
