Zaftique Metro Drawstring Bag | Slouchy Leather Trimmed Shoulder Handbag

Posted on: Apr 29

Zaftique has taken its Allegro and given it some casual twists to create the Metro drawstring bag.

The Metro still has the same distinct barrel shape and practical long handles, but it's the details which make this more grab and go than uptown chic. The first is the fabric. Where the Allegro has snakeskin-looking trim and a sexy patent sheen, the Metro has a woven cloth fabric accented with regular leather. It might seem like a step down, and on a purely superficial level it is. But unlike most Zaftique purses, the leather trim is genuine cowhide.

Another casual touch is the Metro’s drawstring top. This feature accentuates the purse's natural slouch, while offering added security. But with that security comes frustration. I like to know that my precious cargo won't go anywhere, but does it really take a top zipper, a magnetic closure, and a drawstring to achieve this? If I was to wrestle with every closure whenever my cell phone rang, I'd surely go mad.

The Metro's casual charm is finished with contrast topstitching. The white cotton really pops against the coffee brown and black bags, giving them a more country feel than their urban name suggests.

At $59 retail, the Metro is hardly expensive. Yet it's the priciest of all Zaftique purses. I suppose the genuine leather justifies the cost, but it hardly looks like a top-of-the range handbag. I'd opt for the chicer Allegro or even the Jaunty and enjoy the spare change!
