Wow, what a pretty pretty Bag. It's pretty substantial but not huge, and it's definitely metalllic but the black trim tones it down and makes it not glaring. It's soft and very roomy and has that wonderful new Kooba smell. I would say, and this is just my opinion, this is a Fall Winter bag. Oh, it will look great in snow. I think it would look out of place in Spring and Summer. It will be great for Holidays but not exclusively a party bag since it's more of a duffle look. Nice Silver Hardware that looks very striking against the bag.
