    Default Maison Martin Margiela Chain Mail Handbag


    Designer Martin Margiela has definitely presented a few unique pieces in his new collection. It seems this fashion artist isn't afraid to use different materials that a bag normally wouldn't be constructed of. The last MMM purse I wrote about was the Cork Clutch, which many weren't a huge fan of. But there is also another member of the uncommon club, which is the Chain Mail Handbag.

    My first thought about this one was how heavy it is. It measures 11.5"x 9.5"x 4.5", which isn't exactly small, so there has to be some weight from the metallic chain mail. Though it doesn't seem too clunky and the sides, bottom and straps are bare with grained leather. But what if you left it in the sun for a while and then carried it with exposed arms? Ouch! But really, why didn't Margiela consider this? It just isn't a practical bag in my opinion. There are too many things about this bag that turn me off. I’m really not feeling the chain mail idea and I prefer slighter hardware embellishments on bags. I wouldn’t even wear this if it were given to me.

    But anyways, if you are a fan of this one, it retails for $ $995. You can check out the details here: Maison Martin Margiela - Chain Mail Handbag - eLUXURY

    Hmm, I am not a big fan of this bag. I wonder if the chain mail makes it really heavy? The design is not bad, but a bit forgettable too.
