If you’ve been reading my blog for over a year, then you’ll remember a tan and fuchsia version of this tote. Back then I compared it to Céline’s famous Cabas tote for its simplicity and two-tone leather combo. A year later, I still think the Roots version is pretty swell, especially this tan/green combo.
Yes, the Céline version is more structured, the leather is more luxurious, and it has a crispness to it, that is undeniable Céline. But it’s also at least 10x more expensive than its Roots counterpart. Not exactly twins, but they could be distant relatives.
$188 at Roots.
