Stella McCartney has reworked her Falabella shoulder bag here into a hobo. Unfortunately, everything that I didn’t like about the bag has been retained except the shape, and nothing particularly new has been added.
The faux python on this bag is terrible. I am all for animal-friendly fashion, but python-printed polyester just isn’t pretty. Snakeskin embossing is hard enough to do on a high quality leather bag, but on an already faux material, I think it’s pretty close to impossible to make it look convincing. Not that McCartney is going for convincing here; she seems to be shooting for more of a shiny disco look, but the point is that the Falabella just looks cheap.
The shape is pretty cute, actually. It’s subtle, as far as hobos go, and the chain trim is really a nice addition. Except that the material is so lightweight and flimsy that the chain kind of weighs down the fabric and pulls it in odd directions. And the thing about having an all chain strap is that it just isn’t that comfortable. No one really wants a chain digging into their shoulder all day.
All this for only $1,375, people. Seriously, where does that price tag come from? I wouldn’t buy it for a tenth of the price.
