MICHAEL KORS Jet Set Travel Medium Leather Tote
I noticed the new model of the bag from Michael Kors at the end of spring: I really liked the shape, size, external pocket with a button! But… then it was produced only in the logo material (such as infinite letters MK as a print). I don’t like that, so I just sighed.
And what was my joy when in the summer I found this model in a single-color version!
At the moment, this model is presented in 5 colors (at the end of the review there is a link to the official website with photos of all colors): pale pink, beige-Nude (oyster), black, red and olive. The bag has gold accessories, a gold keychain MK. Lightning is iron with a very light stroke. It fastens, unzips without problems and jams, as it should.
The size of the bag – width 33 cm, height 24 cm, depth 11 cm.
This is the Medium size, there is also a larger size-Large. The medium bag is placed in A4 format, but quite close (in a folder-file, in a solid folder will not fit). The height of the handles allows you to hang it on your shoulder on a jacket, jacket or even a light coat. On a down jacket and a insulated coat, you will not be able to put it on like this.
The bag has one external button pocket and a large compartment separated by a zippered pocket. The external pocket is very convenient. Bag inside. The pocket in the middle of the bag has soft walls and is designed for a tablet (fits a 10-inch tablet, but quite close, without a cover).
On the back wall there are two open pockets and one large zippered pocket. Also, there is a hooked strap with a carabiner for keys.
There are 6 open pockets on the front wall. The center wide pockets are comfortable, and the narrow pockets at the edges confused me.
There fits only a pen and a small lip balm (even ordinary lipstick will not fit)! I do not know what the manufacturer intended to store there?
Color and compatibility
As it seems to me, the color is quite basic, suitable for a lot of colors!
To be successful in the inexpensive It bag market, a bag requires to be aspirational in addition to budget friendly. The bags channel the gloss of the high-end Michael Kors brand, whose New york city style week catwalk show is always a fiesta of front-row socialites, producing a name that really feels extravagant to a starving British target market. (The name of the much more affordable “Michael” Michael Kors brand seems designed to intentionally blur the line with the extra costly Michael Kors line. This is a comparison to, for example, Miu Miu, which has a standalone name and identity from the Prada mothership.) When Mulberry was selling purses for under ₤ 500, Kate Moss was using them; I just recently saw the lovely young British design Malaika Firth, an existing Style favourite, carrying a Michael Kors Selma on to an airplane. Miranda Kerr, Jessica Alba and also Selena Gomez have actually all been photographed with Selmas and Sophies.
Images of women like this looking blow-dried at airports are vital to the appeal of the brand name. Particular styles recur when stores speak about what their consumers enjoy regarding Michael Kors: “The Harrods customers react to the glamorous way of life that the Michael Kors brand name represents,” says Simon Longland, Harrods’ head of fashion devices. At John Lewis, where the brand name is now a leading vendor in both handbags as well as watches– a market where, in a similar way, prices of the top names have spiralled out of reach of just about the smallest number– head buyer Amanda Scott feels her consumer “loves the luxury way of living Michael Kors supplies”.
The Michael Kors brand name is unusual in deluxe because it prides itself on being autonomous. There are a vast array of price points and the company’s newest prominent hire, revealed previously this month, is the arrival of Cathy Marie Robinson as an elderly vice president as well as worldwide procedures. Robinson, who started her profession in the military, presently holds an equivalent position at Toys’R’Us. But surprisingly, both Longland and Scott describe the Michael Kors bags as “iconic”. As well as brilliant brand name positioning as well as wise advertising– as well as the open objective left in the British market by the likes of Mulberry– the aesthetic of the Selma as well as Sophie bags has actually played a big duty in their success.
The name of the extra affordable “Michael” Michael Kors brand seems developed to deliberately blur the line with the a lot more expensive Michael Kors line. Specific themes repeat when merchants chat concerning what their customers enjoy about Michael Kors: “The Harrods customers react to the extravagant way of life that the Michael Kors brand stands for,” states Simon Longland, Harrods’ head of style devices. Remarkably, both Longland and Scott describe the Michael Kors bags as “famous”.
