Beirn embraces its feminine side with this Ali Bow satchel.
That bow is what gives this satchel its pizzazz. A snakeskin ribbon threads through the front of the purse, culminating in an oversized girly bow. The use of snakeskin rather than silk or satin gives the bow an appealing structure. Cynics might say the bow is too feminine, but I think the colors help to temper it. Rather than typical sugary shades like lavender or pink, Beirn opts for black, cherry red, and this subdued gray and white skin.
I haven’t seen Beirn create a bag with such structure before, but I really like it. This satchel has that vintage ladylike Mad Men feel that is right on trend. It’s big enough to hold everything you really need, and there’s a large zippered pocket for separating your valuables.
I love the platform base, but I wish Beirn had added some metal feet to protect it. Snakeskin shows wear quickly anyway, so we really need all the help we can get. It might be affordable for an exotic accessory at $470, but I still don’t want to replace it any time soon.
