Zazie by Seventy Eight Percent

Zazie by Seventy Eight Percent in Pink/Dark Brown and Yellow/Dark Olive

This pink/dark brown version of this bag caught my eye as I was walking past Cumulus at Wheelock Place, Orchard. The gorgeous pink leather is nice and vibrant against the dark brown canvas and really popped out among the mostly black display of bags at the window.

This bag is called the Zazie made by a company called Seventy Eight Percent. Interestingly enough the Zazie is under their briefcase category. But, according to their website -- "can act as a stylish handbag". Maybe because it was created to be a briefcase, the bag is structured very well and holds its shape without anything inside. The leather flap is made of very soft leather. It also comes with a detachable strap. Here's the write up about the materials from their site:

  • Japanese wax coated canvas, produced from Egyptian cotton. It is beautiful, durable and water repellent
  • Italian top-quality vegetable-tanned leather. No two skins are alike, giving an expression of individuality and character to each of our briefcases

Other than being pricey, the thing I didn't like about the bag was the fact that the straps were attached at the back (see metal hoops on the yellow/dark olive version pictured above) and not where straps are usually found -- at the sides. You know how it is when the straps are at the back, the bag kind of tips forward when used as a shoulder bag. That's exactly how it looked in the store as it hung from the display.

The Zazie retails at US$325 based from their online shop. Unfortunately, I didn't get the chance to ask for the local price in Cumulus.

Check out their site for more colors -- comes in a dozen color combinations.
