Isaac Mizrahi Chic Tote | Gesso Printed Natural Canvas Handbag

Posted on: May 12

Isaac Mizrahi Chic ToteIsaac Mizrahi tests our sanity with this Chic Gesso Printed Tote.

The designer plays by the rules here, giving this tote a traditional boxy shape and pair of rolled handles. It could have come from any fashion house, which is both a blessing and a curse. I love the clean look that Isaac Mizrahi offers, but the very best designers know how to make their mark without obvious logos and signature prints.

This is the kind of tote that could work for any occasion thanks to the marriage of casual and more upmarket materials. The natural canvas is summery and relaxed, while the nude leather trim dresses things up a bit. It's a nice combination. Not outstanding or remarkable, but nice.

This tote is a good size for everyday use, and it's appointed with all those little extras we expect from a high-end label. Note the metal feet designed to protect the leather on the base, and the luxurious leather lining. But this tote falls down on the basics. The short handles are awkward to manage, there's only a single pocket to keep the interior organized, and there isn't even a clasp to close it.

Oh, and I'm not overly enthusiastic about the price. At $1600 this tote is much more expensive than any canvas bag should be. To buy this tote you'd have to have more money than sense!
