Furla Yolande Shopper | Medium Sized Croc Embossed Leather Handbag

Posted on: May 25

Furla attempts to deliver us luxury for less with its croc-embossed Yolande shopper. But sadly it just misses the mark.

While the croc embossed body attempts to stand in for an authentic exotic skin, it's not a very convincing mimic. The textured patent leather also doesn't fall as softly as a truly luxurious skin might. Rather than elegant pleats around the front pocket, the Yolande has awkward puckering. The long hanging tassel also seems out of place, a bohemian throwback which doesn't seem to suit the Yolande's more conservative look.

It's a shame the styling falls short, because this is a well designed handbag. Its dual zipper closure provides backup should one zip become stuck. The metal feet help to protect the glossy base, and the slip and zip pockets are just enough to keep the expansive interior in check. The handles are a shade too short for my tastes, but slender girls should have no problems fitting them over their shoulder.

While the Yolande might cost less than an authentic crocodile purse, at a few hundred dollars it's not exactly cheap either. Personally, I think I'd rather save up and invest in the genuine article than this croc imitator.
