Roger Vivier goes retro with this Metro Shoulder Bag.
Its name makes us think of the big city, but its styling certainly doesn’t reflect a modern metropolis. The brushed antique buckle is a lovely accompaniment to the Metro's brown calfskin body. The strap that runs beneath the buckle cinches the bag in at the base, creating a kind of bow-like effect. It's a subtle tweak to the silhouette, but one which pays dividends.
The short top handles suit the Metro's retro design, but modern girls may crave a more practical carrying option. An extra inch or two would have allowed us to sling the bag over our shoulder. Sadly though, we're left to carry this one over our arm or in our hand. If the bag were smaller I might not have minded, but things will get awkward if you pack the Metro full. And what's the point of a roomy handbag if you can't utilize all its space?
The Metro looks gorgeous but it's got a few functional flaws. I might ignore them on a cheaper handbag, but for a hefty $2036 I think we deserve a bag that's a bit closer to perfect.
