The Sak brand is introducing a pretty nice, new print bag in January . I like the Sak weave bags but find them a bit heavy. This bag has a pretty good price especially if you can use one of the Macys coupons .( Not sure if the Sak falls into the excluded list), and the print is catchy. It's a bit Dooney and Bourke-ish, but without the cutesy-ness of say, their bumblebees, that were really not cute .
The info :
"The Sak has tapped Paris-born graffiti artist Gilles Jourdan to create a one-of-a-kind exclusive print for the brand. The Central Saint Martins graduate, who has recently worked on large scale murals for clients like Paul Smith, PepsiCo, and Nokia, continues to create street art all over the world. Jourdan's artistic collaboration with The Sak marks the Frenchman's first accessories collaboration with an American label. The print reflects The Sak's brand DNA by featuring dove artwork and emphasizing the words "peace," "share," and "listen." It also highlights the 18-year old company's home base of San Francisco on the print, paying homage to the brand's roots. A 60s-inspired modern-day feel channeling a carefree "Summer of Love" urban hippie vibe. Dubbed the Ashbury collection after the famous Haight-Ashbury neighborhood in the City by the Bay, styles include a shopper, satchel, and hobo bag, all fabricated in linen, trimmed in white leather, yellow leather, or black patent leather. A complementary leather collection will be offered in white, black, and luggage brown shades and will feature the print as an inconspicuous inside lining. Priced $99 to $199, the pieces will be available in January at Macy's and at www.thesak.com. "
