Bag of the month: March is for Sonia Rykiel

18/03/2014

Gabriel tote bag in tan leather by Sonia Rykiel
As soon as I spotted the woven handles of the Gabriel tote, I knew I wanted to show this bag as my pick of the month. Those are the kind of handles you want to hold and caress with your fingers - it would be such a delicious and sensuous experience, almost therapeutic if you please. 

Gabriel, that comes in tan and black versions, is an absolutely gorgeous specimen of a handbag! It's soft, but structured, vintage-inspired, but modern (almost sporty) looking and a bit of a chameleon when it comes to changing shape with a simple press of a gold button. 

From the price-point, at £570 the fashion temptation is not cheap, but when compared to many other bags of this caliber, not insanely expensive either.

If you love it as much as I do and believe that this might be your dream bag, you can instantly reduce the price by £160 with a code BAG160UK at Monnier Freres

  17. Gorgeous bag! I love the woven handles as well and the structure is perfect. Although it's a bit more spendy, it looks like a great investment piece and it's so versatile!
