This was a Limited Edition Collection and was retired by Brahmin in 2004. This Collection pairs Brahmins luxurious blue denim suede with rich deep dark red (almost burgundy) smooth leather. The stitching is also dark red which brings the colors and textures together in a crisp look.The hard to find retired Bernadette is one of Brahmin's original large business shoulder totes. It easily makes the transition from boardroom to play. The square shape allows plenty of room for folders and a laptop.
Two rounded handles are attached to the bag by two leather covered rods and allow for carry on your arm or in your hand with a 5 drop to the top of the bag. Or use the optional adjustable cross body shoulder strap with up to a 25 drop.
The Bernadette closes by an interior magnetic flap, and five (not four) stylized feet protect the bottom. I especially like the dark red piping that adds a crisp look to the bag. This versatile bag measures about 16 across the bottom, by 11, by 5.5. Inside has the original suede-like lining that Brahmin is known for, and is more luxurious and softer than the newer lining.
There is a large side to side zip pocket dividing the bag into two compartments. One side has three side by side slip pockets. The other side has a slip pocket, a zip pocket, two pen holders, a hanging key fob, and a gusset pocket.
This is the older style pocket arrangement that many people still prefer. Included are the Brahmin hanging brass logo fob, the Brahmin logo paper description tag, and the Brahmin dust bag.
This beauty is from my personal collection. I do not recall ever carrying it. The bag, inside and outside, is in pristine condition.I really hate to part with her, but she is too beautiful to sit in a dust bag on a shelf in my closet. She needs a new home. This has happened to my listings several times. Please see my auctions and store for more designer bags, shoes, and sweaters. This is a non-smoking house. Thanks for looking and good luck.
