Here’s your first look at Michael Kors’ signature bag for Resort 2011. At a preview of the designer’s resort collection on Friday, I was told that this tote–the Darrington large shoulder tote–will be featured in the Michael Kors resort campaign due out later this year. What do you think? It’ll be available in canvas, shiny calf and metallic suede when it arrives in stores around November. At first glance the word “utilitarian” comes to mind. It’s surprisingly lightweight and very roomy and pocket-filled. The long strap continues as a big trend and this one can be worn on one shoulder or across the body. The silver accents on the leather strips is a chic touch; I appreciate that there’s not too much metal. Kors’ resort collection was all about “Destination”–from the tropics to the mountains to the big city. Kors clearly has designed a bag that encapsulates that mantra. Now will you shell out the money for this bag?
$995, available to pre-order at Michael Kors boutiques
