Lanvin takes the tribal look out of the African wilderness and onto the European runway with this contemporary Ketu shoulder bag.
The wooden beads give this purse its traditional ethnic feel, but the addition of crystals and luxe satin make it feel more high class. Bold brassy links work with the more traditional silver chain to create a really eye-catching shoulder strap. Altogether this is a purse that makes one of the strongest style statements I've seen in some time.
I still have my reservations though. Any accessory that's so bold risks falling out of favor quickly. It also calls for just the right outfit and attitude to avoid looking gimmicky, so it's probably not a bag we can all pull off. And that chunky shoulder strap, while stunning, looks positively painful!
My final reservation comes with the price, a staggering $1895. Considering its lack of real luxury materials, I think the Ketu is far more expensive than it deserves to be. I could likely find several more wearable tribal bags for that price, and have change left over. But then again, they wouldn't be Lanvin!
