Stella McCartney has really been impressing me, lately, which is why I feel doubly disappointed right now. This new addition to the Falabella line is everything that I don’t like about Stella McCartney and nothing that I do. Simply put, it’s cheap and cheesy.
The faux leather material of this bag is half of the problem here. The color is faded and lackluster and the texture looks about as fake as fake gets. This is exactly why people make fun of animal friendly materials, but they don’t all look like this. Stella McCartney just made a terrible choice on this one.
The shape of the bag is flat out boring. It’s nothing more than a flat rectangle. I guess that might have worked out fine if they didn’t add the terrible chain edging. I have liked this chain edging on other McCartney bags, but because the material looks so cheap, the chain just increases the bag’s overall cheesiness. The chain link strap is totally impractical, and doesn’t add to the look of the bag at all.
Basically, I find this bag so lacking in merit that you would have to pay me its $415 price tag to convince me to carry it.
