Leibeskind Berlin lets its materials shine with the Lina.
The Lina's lush buffalo leather really turned my head. This leather isn't used often in fashion, which is a real shame. However, perhaps if it were more common bags like the Lina wouldn't look as fresh! Buffalo is just as strong as cowhide, and as easy to take care of. But its deep rustic grain makes its finish appear much richer. It also doesn't stretch as easily as calf leather, so we can feel confident utilizing all the space the Lina offers.
The buffalo skin's rustic look is emphasized with exposed seams. This almost unfinished appearance won't be to everyone's taste, but it makes the Lina look especially earthy.
Leibeskind Berlin's colored its buffalo skin with bold saturated hues. I think this deep aqua would be especially versatile, but the cheerful yellow purse is also hard to resist.
The Lina's multiple carrying options allow us to easily manage its bulk. The rolled handles can probably slip over your shoulder during summer, but you'll need the attachable strap once you reach for your winter coat.
It's just a shame Leibeskind Berlin hasn't backed up all that space with more pockets. The zippered pocket and cell phone compartment are hardly enough to keep such an enormous interior organized. The lack of metal feet is another glaring omission. Such lush leather really deserves some protection.
But when Leibeskind Berlin charges just $279 for such a beautiful bag, I feel like I’m nit-picking over its flaws. That's not a lot to spend on a hobo of such quality, even if it's not perfect.
