Z Spoke by Zac Posen Ruched Leather Shoulder Bag | Purple Pleated Convertible Handbag

Posted on: Feb 24

Zac Posen Ruched Leather Shoulder BagAt its best ruching can soften a handbag and show off the quality of its leather. At its worst the accent looks a little something like this.

I'm not sure what Zac Posen did wrong here, but the result looks off to me. The ruched finish sits awkwardly, and the bows at the side only add insult to injury. The frame also seems out of place, rising about the ruches like some kind of disappointing phoenix. Yeah, I'm just not feeling this one.

It's a shame because were it a better looking bag I could really dig it. Posen's definitely delivered on the practical front. That wide shoulder strap is adjustable and detachable, so we can work this purse as a clutch, shoulder bag, or a cross-body depending on our mood. The size is just right too; not too big to work in clutch mode, not so small that we have to leave the things we really need behind. And then we see those metal feet on the base ready to protect the soft leathery finish.

If we look at the quality of this purse, its $295 price tag seems quite reasonable. But its looks really let it down. I understand that this is from Posen's affordable diffusion line, but style is one area I don't expect him to skimp.
