Something about the fusion of wood and exotic is unnervingly sexy. Maybe it’s the fact that the two elements belong in the wild. McQ Alexander McQueen’s choice of a black-cherry hue adds to the already-heightened feel. And the pert shape, punctuated by silver studs, is both strong and dainty.
I think I want to design my desk with this bag serving as inspiration: all dark wood with accents of snake-embossed leather. How freaking sick would that be? In the interest of saving trees, since I just got a new desk in a very similar wood finish, I should just get a blotter in cherry python! Ohhhh!! New project!!!
A hard box silhouette might rule this out as an everyday choice, but this is small enough to not be cumbersome. Besides, something this special is worth suffering for – which is what your bank account won’t be doing. At merely $490 (alas, it’s, of course, snake-effect leather), this is a plaything for having nothing but fun with. On Ssense.
