I am extremely picky when it comes to exotic handbags. I’ve seen so many gorgeous bags yet, at the same time, I’ve seen so many horrible bags. You really cannot skimp on attention to detail when it involves exotic skins. As I am sure many of you already know, sloppy craftsmanship results in flaking scales which is perhaps one of the biggest handbag no-nos out there. Luckily there are several design houses who continue to hit home run after home run with exotics.
Leave it to Carlos Falchi to put together the most amazing hobo that I’ve been obsessing over all day.
The Carlos Falchi Sueded-Python Slouch Hobo is the perfect combination of fashion, functionality and amazing execution. Like hobos in general, if not careful, exotic hobos can look like they were constructed haphazardly. Not the case here. The bark (brown) sueded python skin hugs the shape and style of this bag perfectly. Gunmetal hardware and a leather top handle (12″ drop) offer a bit of contrast to this neutral bag. I love the zip top with the tonal tie but even better yet, light blue suede lining. What a gorgeous pairing of colors. The bag is slouchy, smooshy and one that would go from day to night without much effort. Bravo Mr. Falchi, bravo! Buy through Bergdorf Goodman for $2875.
