Union of the Snake — Rachel Rachel Roy Colorblock Python Satchel
Though color-blocking was one of the foremost Spring/Summer 2011 fashion trends, its life span is proving longer than anticipated, with designers relying on the technique for their fall wares. Prime example: the new Rachel Rachel Roy Colorblock Python Large Satchel ($99 at RachelRoy.com), which juxtaposes a buttery cream, python-textured material with a matte black, python-textured material to yield a polished effect.
Measuring 14 1/2″ in length, 10″ in height, and 6″ in depth, this Rachel Rachel Roy satchel features a rounded top surface with a zippered closure; slim, double shoulder straps with brass-toned hardware accents; a broad, canvas cross-body strap with a brass-toned buckle and a row of eyelets for an adjustable fit; two layers of angular patches along the bottom corners, one in a matte black shade and, above it, another in a python-textured material. The inside, meanwhile, features multiple pockets, a zippered pouch, and a pocket in which to carry your cell phone.
You can remove the canvas cross-body strap for a sleeker, more elegant look, or keep it in place for a more casual, city-ready functionality.
