Below: Bally is slowly sending positive vibes to my bag radar... I love the new Rachele Leather Tote, modern and interesting while bearing a great price tag! Especially love the black and white version, very graphic chic!
Below: The nude and grey trim version is equally noteworthy! There is even a taller version which I spotted in Singapore's Bally store last weekend... love them both:-P
Bally Rachele Leather Tote
Call it Céline looking or even Prada Executive Tote's evil twin... one thing's for sure, I want Bally's new Spring Summer 2011 Rachele Leather Tote!
There are commendable details for this Bally bag by new creative directors, Graeme Fidler and Michael Herz. One most notable detail is the interesting panel effect on the body which allows for multi colour and contrasting materials. I love the extended rim of white or grey in a different material for added visual and tactile appeal. The way the handles are designed is also beautiful, riveted with black studs and a clean line of stitching for a modern touch. The colour ways is contemporary, utilising graphic black and white or complimentary nude and grey tones. Little touches like a detachable mini coin purse is endearing! Best of all, the price of just £649 wins hands down over any bag that has this level of design:-) I simply love the clean lines (suitable for guys too!) and size (41cm x 31cm x 17cm) of the Rachele Bag!
(If this shorter version is not to your liking, there is also a taller version, which was spotted over my shopping expedition last weekend at Singapore's Bally Store in Ngee Ann City. A different proportion for new possibilities and at a great price of SGD1795)
Retail price: £649 (w/o VAT). Where to buy: www.net-a-porter.com
