Looking Back, Looking Forward

Enduring charm. This week’s feature is the Michael Kors Ashbury E/W satchel. Since its entree, this bag has stood in the shadow of the ever-popular MK large Astor satchel. The Ashbury satchel, however, may win the long-run battle because of its finesse.

It has silvertone studs, but only in concentration around the front zippered pocket and the sides thereby softening the motorcycle-inspired style apparent in the Astor satchel. Buttery soft leather in MK’s signature “luggage” color, tasseled leather zipper pulls, and double straps with a striking whip stitching make this bag a modern classic.
