Pilar Abril turns heads with this striking Calathea Shoulder Bag.
I'm in love with this shoulder bag's unique textured finish. Pilar Abril has slashed and twisted its leather to create its scaly looking panel. Cleverly placed stitches keep the design looking its best without detracting from it. This three-dimensional surface looks modern but as it's so original it shouldn't date.
Pilar Abril hasn't just rested on its laurels though, as the Calathea's appeal goes beyond its surface. Its spacious main compartment is well supported by a collection of leather trimmed pockets. Its signature lining is bright white, so it should be easy to locate anything you're looking for. Its strap is also much longer than the average shoulder strap, and a little wider too for comfort.
I might sound like I'm gushing, but I'm finding it difficult to detect any real flaws with the Calathea. Of course any bag that dares to be different will have its haters, but I don't think the designer should have done anything differently. Pilar Abril has created a truly original shoulder bag with quality materials here. Ordinarily that combination would break the bank, but the Calathea is a real bargain at just $99.
