Paul Smith tones down his usual design vision with this Josephine shopper. Gone is the bright rainbow of colors Paul Smith usually paints with, replaced instead with a soft blue cotton denim.
This fabric is perfect for creating Paul Smith's casual everyday shopper. It looks so relaxed, with its slouchy shape and gray grosgrain ribbon drawstring. These closures are never my favorites as they're a bit fiddly to work with, but this one certainly adds to the bag's everyday good looks. Brown leather trim and handles dress things up just a bit, reminding us that even though it's a casual purse it's still one with a designer pedigree.
I really wish Paul Smith had done more with the interior though. The cheery neon yellow logo plate was a great start, but where are the functional features? A bag of this size really needs more than Paul Smith's minimalist approach. You're in for a lot of scrounging at the bottom of your bag when you take the Josephine out to play.
At $136.95 it might just be worth the effort though. That's not small change for a fabric bag, but it's also not exorbitant for one which bears the Paul Smith name.
