Guess Berlin Satchel | Colorblock Croc Print Striped Purse

Posted on: May 27

I've never really warmed to the colorblock trend, so it's surprising that Guess may be the brand to help me change my mind.

In the handbag world, Guess doesn't have the reputation of a Gucci or a Givenchy. The fashion house uses synthetic rather than real leather, and has been accused of merely imitating the big names. While it might have followed the others into the world of colorblocking, it's definitely made its own mark with the Berlin.

Rather than using a rainbow of vibrant skins, Guess keeps it complementary with white, taupe, and pale shimmering gold. The gold tone could easily have looked gaudy, but by toning things down and using it just for accents Guess avoids any tackiness. The crocodile print we see throughout won't convince any real fashion fans you're carrying a real exotic, but it still adds a sense of luxury to the purse.

The roomy interior is lined with playful signature print cotton. The space should please gadget loving girls, with its zip pockets and three media pouches. The zippered exterior pocket on the back is great for keeping keys and other small valuables safe and within easy reach.

The use of colorblocked techniques may be right on trend, but by using a traditional satchel shape Guess makes sure this purse will work for a few seasons. With its slightly glitzy appearance the Berlin could easily take you from a day at the mall to cocktails with friends.
