Michael Kors is one of those designers that seems to follow, rather than determine, the trends. That doesn't mean his work is all bad though. On the contrary, some of the best designers are those that are able to interpret cutting edge ideas and make them accessible to a wider audience. This Hadley Darrington takes the simultaneous trends of nude, neutral leathers and motorcycle chic and blends them in a totally sophisticated way.
The taupe leather on this bag seems a little off to me. It's too brown to be nude, but a little peachy to be rich. The color just looks a little synthetic to me. The glossy finish doesn't help matters much either, nor does the prominent seaming. Overall, I think the material is just a little ill chosen.
The shape of the Hadley Darrington is sharp. It's a sleek, simple tote with great zippered pockets on the sides that make it very practical. The problem is that Kors has gone a little overboard with the buckles and hardware. There's simply too much silver on this bag, and it's a little overwhelming.
While this bag combines prominent trends at an affordable price point, I still think that $995 is a little much to pay for a bag that isn't very well thought out.
