An In-Depth Look at the MCM Berlin Tambourine Crossbody

Other Brands

Until I started working at PurseBlog, MCM wasn’t a brand that was particularly on my radar. Sure, I knew of its existence, but when I thought of MCM I mostly thought of its logo, and I was at a time in my bag-loving life where I was kinda over the logo trend. My Louis Vuitton bags were collecting dust in my closet, and I was leaning towards less logo-centric pieces as I expanded my designer collection. Fast forward a few years, and ironically enough, here I am loving logos again! However, what I learned prior to the return of my logo love was that there is so much more to MCM than its logo bags. I fell for the amazing quality of its bags and the wide variety of shapes offered. MCM tailors its collection to include both classic shapes in beautiful leathers as well as trendier and super fun pieces. When MCM introduced its insanely festive holiday campaign my eyes were drawn to one bag and one bag alone—the Berlin Tambourine Crossbody. I was immediately obsessed and knew that I needed a closer look

The circle bag trend has definitely been around the block a fair bit over the last few seasons, but this bag embraces it in a fun new way. Where many circle bags include a top handle and a zip closure, this bag features MCM’s classic Laurel lock closure, which is something I’ve grown to love as it’s distinctly MCM. Inspired by Germany’s rock & roll culture the Berlin Crossbody Bag is adorned with gold studded detailing atop Odeon coated canvas. It’s incredibly chic and easy to wear, fitting in perfectly with my wardrobe. I wore this with jeans and a leather jacket, but it would look great with a more elevated look for a holiday party such as a leopard dress or even a great black jumpsuit.

The interior of this bag, which is lined in a beige microsuede, is incredibly tiny—there’s no getting around that! With overall dimensions of 7.1″ x 7.1″ x 2.2″, it won’t hold very much, but there is an interior card slot which allows you to go sans wallet or card case. When I go out at night I often bring along just my ID, debit card, one credit card and maybe some cash, so a wallet isn’t even totally necessary. My iPhone X fit perfectly inside, which is honestly most important. I had room to add in a lipgloss, chapstick, and a hair clip. The cross body strap is adjustable, and it’s also totally removable so you could even hand carry this to a fancy event without the strap. A true showstopper, this bag is one you’ll want to carry this holiday season and beyond.
