I like this Falabella tote so much better, there is something about the cut out corners of the original design that didn’t sit right with me. Now I feel complete. I am a lover of linen so this makes perfect sense for a Stella bag, I don’t feel like I am compromising or being robbed of superior material (the linen also off sets the weight of the chain). When faced with limitations, you have to get creative which is indicative of this tie-dyed treatment. It’s not Rastafarian tie-dye cuz that would be scary and gross, this is like a wall treatment and gives texture and interest with tonal variations. The thick contrast stitching on the top may seem a bit too much with the chain and all but it actually is an important detail for a polished finish. We are going to see a lot more of you, Falabella, cuz this is a classic that is here to stay. At Saks Fifth Avenue for $1435.
