Patchwork has fallen out of favour in recent years, but if any fashion house can bring it back it's Proenza Schouler. The label gives it its best shot with this Patchwork Shopping Tote.
I've always been partial to well done patchwork, and this shopping tote offers that. Proenza Schouler's sewn together colored swatches of high quality leather to create an abstract geometric pattern. I love the way the muted tan, green, blue and white hues work together, and the way they complement the darker chocolate straps and accents. The zigzag stitching wasn't the most sophisticated choice, but it does give this shopper a quirky homespun charm. Perhaps we shouldn't expect a patchwork purse to be too posh, even if it does bear the Proenza Schouler name!
This patchwork tote is spacious, with long leather handles that are easy to grab as you run out the door. Its single interior pocket has a big job to do though. The main compartment is really too large for just one pocket, and without any closure this is the only secure space we have. And goodness knows anyone who can afford to spend more than a thousand on a tote probably has some precious cargo to carry.
It might be tempted if it had a closure at the least, but without it I can think of several better ways to spend $1150, can't you?
