Stella McCartney Nirvana Tote | Leopard Print Nylon Carryall Bag

Posted on: Feb 12

Stella McCartney Nirvana ToteJust because Stella McCartney shuns animal furs and leathers in her fashion line doesn't mean she's above mimicking their exotic coats. It might seem as incongruous as those veggie sausages and Thanksgiving tofurkey, but that's just what we get with this Nirvana tote.

Those gripes aside, this is a fair effort from Stella McCartney. I'm glad to see her ditching that cheap looking glossy synthetic she's used so much of recently for a more palatable nylon. It's still not very luxurious but the finish seems much richer, especially when covered with blotchy leopard spots. I'm not always a fan of this animal print, but the neutral earthy tones make this one feel more classic fashion and less desperate cougar.

The Nirvana's design is impressive too. It's luxuriously large, but if you're still struggling for space you can gain a few extra inches by unzipping the sides. The two exterior pockets are camouflaged by those spots, but if you lose them there are a few more inside! The webbed handles will be every bit as sturdy as they look, perfect for those girls who love to grab their tote and go with a minimum of fuss.

While this is one of the better examples of Stella McCartney's design prowess, I'm still not sure she's done enough to justify the $975 price tag. That's a lot of money for a nylon handbag after all!
