Carlos Falchi Oversized Handy Python Clutch

carlosfalchi_oversizehandyclutch.png

Oversized clutches are handy but this is “handy” on a whole other level. Literally handy, many many hands with rings and bracelet on to boot. Wow. This pushes the outer boundaries of ugly. I might have to take back everything good ever said about Carlos Falchi. Only the hands are of python, the rest is textured cracked leather, which is an interesting choice because they usually use snake or crocodile on lotion commercials to represent dryness. This is not even funny and costumey for special dress up occasions like Halloween, it’s just bad. Maybe this is the “Why can’t we all get along” version of patchwork to work in different patterns, colors and textures. But I am being lenient and kind flexing all my might to find an explanation and bright side to something that defies all rationale. At Bergdorf Goodman for pre-order, $1510. Thankfully, this is not allowed to be sold in California.

    Of course I would never spend this much money on this, but I do think it’s fun!

    To quote the great Polly Mellen: “It erases everything.” Unfortunately in this case, it ERASES everything GREAT that Falchi has done before. This makes me want to cry.

    This has got to be one of the worst designer handbags I have ever laid eyes on. My retinas are burning.
