Jalda Paula Satchel | Large Blue Weathered Lambskin Handbag

Posted on: Sep 9

Jalda Paula SatchelI've long admired Jalda's clutch purses, with their contemporary designs and high quality materials. What a shame that designing flair didn't translate to this much larger Paula satchel. It's got some solid elements, but sadly it falls flat for me.

Let's start with the positives. That blue Italian lambskin is divine. The leather has a slightly weathered appearance which makes it look like worn in denim. It'd complement that iconic jeans material well, but as it's slightly different it wouldn't look too matchy-matchy. It's also got plenty of storage space in its adorable turquoise faille lined interior.

But quality material and ample room does not a great handbag make. Jalda just hasn't done enough with the skin in my opinion. The simple voluminous design is a bit lazy, and the black trim and handles really do nothing for the blue lambskin.

I'm also disappointed that the handles are so short. To be fair, Jalda has offered a longer strap as well, but when we use it those short rolled handles hang awkwardly. If they just had a few more inches the Paula would be much smarter.

For $490 this satchel doesn't represent bad value. It's well made from high quality materials, and often that would cost us much more. Its minimalist design also means it won't date as so many bags do. But sadly it's lacking the flair that makes me want to lay my money down.
