Paul Smith tones down his usual colourful aesthetic with this Formby cross-body bag.
Gone are the familiar rainbow swirls, replaced with an almost gloomy taupe hue. The color was a shock at first, but I concede it's probably more wearable than the vibrant hues Paul Smith usually favors. The neutral leather is embossed with elegant crocodile scales for extra interest. It's not the best exotic embossing I've seen, but it's also far from the worst.
The Formby's dual compartment design makes staying organized a cinch. The bag's a bit too petite to handle the stuff you need on an average day out, but at least what you are carrying will stay in order.
The Formby's small stature has its limitations, but it also brings some unexpected perks. It won't weigh us down while we're running errands or shopping up a storm. We can also strip away the strap entirely and turn it into an easy-carry clutch for an evening out on the town.
Personally I think I'd use the petite Formby as an evening bag more than a daytime carrier. At a little under $400 that makes it seem like an expensive proposition. If you can work it into your everyday wardrobe too, I expect it'll seem like much better value.
