I love the straw feel to the bag and in the picture above as well as when you look at the bag from afar, the bag looks quite similar to the Prada Madras bag.
The website describes the bag as representing the duality of a woman as the name Dolce illustrates the sweetness of a woman (the name conjures up an image of a sensuous confident woman to me) whilst the clasp symbolizes her innate strength.
I personally prefer the classic design of the bag rather than the leather straw design. I love the colours but it would be great to see a summer range of them such as in turquoise. My dream Dolce would be the classic design above but with thise season's aubergine print (you can see it as the border for the black bag).
