Zac Posen Jane Shoulder Bag


The fall season has proven to be a "hit-or-miss" period for Zac Posen handbags in my book. While I absolutely adore the Abbey Satchel, the Billie Top Handle Bag was an utter disappointment. Thankfully, the scales are tipping in favor of the young designer again with his engaging Jane Shoulder Bag. This intriguing design takes a different direction by employing several contemporary design elements which were lacking in Posen's mostly vintage-inspired bags. Textured leather serves as the backdrop for the real star of the show - polished gold-tone hardware. From the metal ring attachments found on the shoulder strap to the studded leather side bands to the U-shaped decorative accent on the front flap, the hardware is what what gives the 'Jane' its' modern flair. The leather shoulder strap, fold-over flap and side bands are done in a muted shade of green that compliments the moss-colored body in a sophisticated manner. Suede lining and convenient interior zip pocket finish off the list of amenities. The Zac Posen Jane Shoulder Bag scores a big "A+" with me and renews my hopes that Zac won't become "that young designer who creates granny bags". Available for $1200 via eLUXURY.
