Renaud Pellegrino Gabriel Tote


At first glance you won’t think this bag is anything worth mentioning but let me point out renaudpellegrino_gabriel_int.jpgthe details I’m digging on. First of all, this color is going to be ginormous for Fall/Winter, instead of the steel grey of last year, this taupey grey is warmer and much easier to wear. Those big pockets will not go away, we are seeing them everywhere but it is because they are just so darn practical! And the look is starting to grow on people so they no longer look oddly oversized. And when it comes to organization, there is no better than a zipped center divider but get this, this bag is 17 1/2″ x 9 3/4″ so guess what will fit in that center pocket? That’s right tech geniuses, a laptop (at least a MacBook)! Not convinced yet? Let me get to the nitty gritty. This super minimalist design is perfected with the nitty gritty details, like the stitching that kicks boring in the butt and the subtle chrome hardware just gives that dash of oomph it needs, especially with the nipped pleats. The lining is also sublime, the red satin with this taupe are the colors of my fantasy cool, quiet lounge bar where I enjoy a perfectly made martini and I only need to talk to people I like. This is that bag you are only buying one this season. At

Couture Lab for $1430.

    It might be functional, but I still think it’s ugly.

    I agree this colour is unpleasant, but in black it is fabulous. The picture does not do it justice, and the workmanship is better than Prada’s. I love the black one and bought it in the smaller size. The effect is one of understated elegance, due in large part to the hand-stitching (timeless) and the excellent soft, lightweight pebble leather. The semi-structured shape and understated classicism – just the right mix of sophistication and modernity.
