Hi bag lovers, how is your week going ?
I’ve been a bag person for a while. Even though I can make a handbag for myself, I sometimes still go for another bag if it looks nice and unique. I think carrying a nice and unique bag can make everything you’re wearing look better.
This week I am going to review one of the Michael Kors products in the MICHAEL line which is the Selma Medium Top Zip Satchel.
In general, the pros and cons about this product are:
Pros: durable, easy to clean, fashionable.
Cons: expensive, not really unique.
Most bag lovers know Michael Kors, one of the high-end brands with reasonable prices compared to other brands like Louis Vuitton, Prada, Celine, etc.
Firstly, I will mention something about the brand. Michael Kors has 3 product lines, which are the “MICHAEL” by Michael Kors, “KORS” by Michael Kors and the main Michael Kors line.
I think Michael Kors has done a poor job of creating a unique identity for their budget line apart from their main line. It’s hard to tell the difference between these product lines because they have a similar aesthetic.
Secondly, I will look at the material and price.
This bag is made from Saffiano leather and the price is $CA476.
What is Saffiano leather? This is a sort of textured leather; the way to make this kind of leather is by stamping on the leather with a machine in order to create a texture. It’s easy to clean and durable.
The price is not bad compared to KORS or Michael Kors product lines, which have a medium price of $CA1000 but it is still expensive for those consumers who are students or have a medium wage.
This style of bag has a classic silhouette. Like most of the brand, this fancy bag has a golden lettered logo on the front for easy brand recognition.
The bag has 2 small pockets and a zip pouch which is convenience for a girl who wants to keep many things in her bag like makeup, keys, coins, notes and so on. Also with double handles and a shoulder strap, there are options to carry the bag by hand or on the shoulder.
Regarding the size, it fits a MacBook Air 11”, so it’s good for those who like to carry a laptop when hanging out but still want to have a fashionable look.
Overall, it’s a good and fashionable bag and that’s why these days it’s easy to see that everyone has a Michael Kors bag. But in my personal opinion, it’s not particularly unique. It’s better to have something different, like one you’ve designed and made by yourself!!! 🙂
