Michael by Michael Kors Medium Reese Satchel ReviewJuly 24, 2014
|Michael by Michael Kors Medium Reese Satchel|
The "Reese" is a richly compartmentalized handbag with two zippered external compartments and one central compartment closeable with a snap fastener. Within these three larger divisions are a number of slip pockets, zip pockets, and accessory ports.
The pebbled leather is understandably stiff as the shape of the bag depends on a certain rigidity of structure. It's certainly not my favorite type of leather and impressions on the leather can be difficult to reverse.
The low-300 price range is consistent with other handbags in this class for Michael Kors but, speaking only for myself, I do not consider it necessary or desirable to hoard multiple bags of similar design manufactured under the same brand (which isn't too say I don't routinely violate my own arbitrary shopping guidelines).
|The handheld straps fold down! One requirement that not enough bags fulfill.|
And the crossbody strap is adjustable and detachable.
The hardware on Michael Kors handbags are naturally "better" (or sturdier, shinier, etc.) than most Zara handbags and the details more nuanced (number of fasteners, pockets, and compartments) but as I was not specifically seeking out a particular type of bag, these details did not make a conspicuous difference to me.
