    Default RM Contrast Stitch MAM







    Rebecca Minkoff Handbags will be celebrating their 5th anniversary this year and it looks like RM intends to make it memorable. In addition to some all new designs, we will be seeing some new twists on the classic favorites. Case in point, the Contrast Stitch Morning After Mini. Itís the classic satchel that put RM on the map, with large contrasting hand stitching to give it a funky edge. While I love the idea, I fear this may be a QC disaster waiting to happen. Itís no secret that RM has had quite a few quality issues lately and this type of detail will quickly show any flaws. One lose stitch or uneven placement can ruin the aesthetic.

    Priced in line with standard MAMs, the Contrast Stitch Morning After Mini is yours for $550. Available in red with black stitching at www.myobsessionbotique.com or black with blue stitching at Rebecca Minkoff .
    hmmmm... maybe something RED next

    I prefer the classic. I understand and can see the need for her wanting to mix things up, adding some little detail, but I'm not really feeling it. There will be those who love it, but me, just nay.

    Sorry...but i detest contrast stitching and bags where the sewing is exposed
    This looks like some of the Carla Manchini bags, which have gorgeous design and style, but the stitching ruins it for me...

    I'm not a fan of the contrast stitch either.

    you know, the more i look at this style, the cheaper it starts to look. at first i was feeling the boho vibe, but i see this as more of a trendy bag.
    these days i am trying to focus on bags that i will still love and use beyond the fads, and i just don't think this is one of them.
    hmmmm... maybe something RED next

    I like the look of the red with black stitching but the black with blue just looks wrong.

    I love MAM's, but this is just a disaster. I fear over time, as the bag ages, the stitching will get so much worse. And it's going to be a nightmare trying to get RM LLC to fix it, too. Oh vey.
