Stella McCartney has recently released a new line of faux leather saddle bags. There are a couple of problems with this. The first is that, usually, saddle bags have some relationship, either functionally or aesthetically to the saddle bags that are used on horses and motorcycles, and these certainly don't. The second is that the faux leather McCartney has chosen for this line looks about as fake as fake can be.
The faux leather on this bag is that same material that was used on the smaller, green version of the bag. I didn't like it yesterday, and I don't like it now. I know that it's some sort of high-tech, environmentally-friendly faux leather, but it just looks like plastic to me. Plus, the color is off somehow. Even with the embossing, it just all looks too even-toned. There's just no dimensionality.
The shape of the bag is fine, a traditional messenger. But the front flap doesn't entirely cover the opening of the bag, which both looks bag and is also unsafe, since the top doesn't feature a zipper. The bag looks cheap and is poorly constructed. I definitely wouldn't pay McCartney's $965 asking price. Honestly, I wouldn't even pay a tenth of it.
