There’s a lot going on with the J. Crew Embossed Leather Crossbody Bag. There might actually be a bit too much going on, actually. I appreciate the quality and workmanship that went into it (they describe this as a “labor of love”), but I’m not excited by the ivory and black palette or the leather meant to emulate karung lizard skin. The cornered off edges look a little out of place, too. It’s an interesting design, but ultimately doesn’t work for me. Available for $278 at J. Crew.
