I have a major thing for perforations. I’ve realized that I have an obsession with clothing and accessories that are covered in circles, whether it’s grommets, dots, pearls, or studs…and perforations are just the latest iteration of this. Luckily for me this seems to be a pretty big trend at the moment, so I shouldn’t have too tough a time fulfilling my hankering for perforated pieces! My absolute FAVORITE at the moment is this:
I have the regular Transport Tote in black, and I can’t even tell you how useful it’s been. I love the raw leather, the contrasting handles, and the fact that it’s light while having enough space to hold a ton. It’s versatile, simple, and goes with everything…it’s got the unfussy, downtown vibe that Madewell does so well. It’s just incredibly easy to wear, and it’s held up well over the years that I’ve had it. So when I saw the perforated version…I instantly fell in love. It pains me how badly I want it, and how much I do NOT need another tote bag.
