Sonia Rykiel dresses up the usually conservative Boston bag style with this purse from her Sonia by Sonia Rykiel diffusion line.
Animal lovers need not be incensed by this accessory; while its leopard printed body feels sumptuously soft, it's actually made of a faux fur. The imitation fur probably won't fool anyone, but it doesn't look as tacky as some cheaper faux materials.
And for this price, it wouldn't want to. $310 seems pretty exorbitant for a faux fur purse, especially one which comes from a diffusion label. At least Sonia Rykiel appeases us with genuine leather handles and trim. I'll try not to think of the hypocrisy which shuns genuine fur products but advocates the slaughter of cows; at the end of the day this luxury material helps to justify that hefty price.
The lovely leopard print body is really the selling point here. Everything else toes the line, from the traditional Boston shape to the perfectly functional interior. It's generously sized and has its fair share of compartments, but it's really nothing to write home about.
This isn't the cheapest Boston bag around, but it is one of the most distinctive. It's up to you whether that's enough to justify the relatively expensive price.
