I have no idea what I am looking at; it could be anything from a buffalo (its name), a weepy elephant, or a sheep dog. What I do know, however, is that it’s a total waste of good python skin. But I am a firm believer in accentuating the positive so instead of griping about what I hate about it, I am going to focus on what I like about this python bag from Carlos Falchi and how I’d change what I don’t like. As my hubby loves to say, “don’t be a part of the problem, be a part of the solution”.
Let’s start with the python skin, which is gorgeous, as Falchi is known for supple exotic leathers. I also like the general outline and shape of the bag. The metallic washed treatment is of course fab but the ruching in the front with the tie is so distracting it’s all I can look at. Now if we could just untie the string, trim about 3 inches from each side and just let the flap be a simple flap, it’d have a shot of being a cute bag. This actually gives me an idea for an art project for my son, I can tie a string through a piece of leather and call it a buffalo, he’ll be so entertained! $2,850 at Neiman Marcus.
