Most of the time I find bags with lots of zippers tacky. However, I find this Gotham satchel quite appealing. The only hardware you can find on this bag is just zippers and one big zipper pull on the main compartment that has Donna Karan engraving. I think it is very wise to limit the amount of hardware. The design clearly states that this bag is all about the zippers. Additional hardware will just turn this bag to hardware overload.
One thing that I appreciate about this Gotham satchel is that it has just the right amount of rock and roll flavor to it. This means you don’t have to dress like a rock star to be able to carry this bag. As to the zippers, I must say that I prefer the bag with all the zippers open. I think it gives the bag a fuller shape and more texture. Pre-order from Neiman Marcus for $1,495
