Be & D Tudor Shoulder Bag


The Chloé Mavis Hunting Bag was the runner-up on my list of spring shoulder bags. Now it's time I treat everyone to my top pick. The Be & D Tudor Shoulder Bag is a modern classic in the making. Much like the label's iconic Garbo Satchel, which combines a timeless style with stud detailing, the 'Tudor' (love the name!) incorporates a current trend (the chain shoulder strap) and makes it the focal point of the design. Other than the nickel-plated pushlock closure on the small fold-over flap, the chain strap is the only true element that attracts the eye. That's exactly what one should look for in an investment bag - a point of interest mixed with classic appeal. The washed black lambskin leather provides texture and edge. The dimensions on this bag (10 x 15.8 x 2) are on the slim side, but still roomy enough to use both day and night. In fact, the 'Tudor' would be a great choice for the office as well as the time-honored "happy hour" thereafter.

In the spirit of finding more affordable designer bags, I thought the Tudor Shoulder Bag's $795 price tag might be its true selling point for many of you. It's not available online, but you can purchase one at Saks in Dadeland, Fl, NYC, Houston or Beverly Hills.

    Great pick Dania. I just love Be&D. I am guessing that there is an exterior zippered opening, because Be&D bags are always so functional! I like the hardware closure, reminds me a little bit of YSL. I think my only complaint would be that I would love the option to shorten the chain strap - maybe make it removable and allow you to double it up (my only current hesitation in moving forward on the JC fringe bag). I tend to like to be able to carry my bags in the crook of my arm occasionally. Let us know if you decide to purchase this beauty.
