While we do have PurseBlog Savvy for contemporary affordable designers and Bag that Style for celebrity style, sometimes we still integrate the two into PurseBlog. Today’s post is no exception and even better covers both categories, celeb style and a savvy designer. We are talking about the countrified pop queen of the world right now, Taylor Swift, and the brand Hobo International. Taylor Swift’s new go-to handbag brand is Hobo International, a company who continues to produce chic designs at affordable prices.
What bag has Taylor stuck with? The Hobo International Trinity in luscious aubergine Sonoma leather. Let’s dissect this bag, shall we?
First and foremost is the design. The overall appeal of this hobo is it has an easy to love shape. While the design itself is nothing extraordinary, the details of the bag give much needed touches. The leather is washed Italian goatskin, which will be completely soft and smooshy.
Next your attention is drawn to the single twisted shoulder strap. I love a little extra oomph added to something otherwise simple, like a shoulder strap. While a chain shoulder strap breaks up the design as well, it is typically heavy or digs into your shoulder. A sophisticated leather twist is ideal for comfort and style.
Other additions include the cinched side pocket with tassels, which can be seen as Taylor Swift carries the bag. This bag is completely functional, featuring the Hobo signature organizer (multiple pockets and loops). Bag measurements are 13 W x 15 H x 4 D while the shoulder drop is a roomy 12″. Now we get to the best part, the price. You can have all of this for a mere $348 via Hobo International.
Word from Hobo International is Taylor Swift loves this bag and brand so much, she just ordered a bunch more! We will be on the lookout.
