Dolce & Gabanna Miss Dalia HoboI’ve had mostly positive things to say about Dolce & Gabanna bags lately, but I just can’t get behind the Dolce & Gabanna Miss Dalia Hobo. My problems with it are similar to those of a bag of which we’ve spoken recently – the Jimmy Choo Metallic Hobo.

They obviously look nothing alike, but I can’t help but feel that this bag might be an afterthought as well. At they very least, it’s perilously under-designed and without much personality. There’s a bit of animal print, a bit of exotic leather, a bunch of suede…so how, exactly, did the folks at Dolce manage to make that boring? And not just boring, but also, possibly, a bit 90s. Particularly for it’s hefty price tag (almost two grand – egad!), this bag just isn’t cutting it. It’s too simple and lacks creativity. Next. Buy through Saks for $1995.

    I agree-the lines just don’t add up to pectacular…it looks almost cheesy, if that makes any sense.

    Oh, yeah, Practical! Isn’t that what suburban people use for UGLY!

    The use of leopard as an accent mixed with exotic skin reminds me of a very good seller from Louis Vuitton in the fall 07. They had a group with the same print on poney and burgundy croc on the handles. D&G basically tooked the idea, Cheapened it out by reducing the amount of print replacing it by “Oh-soo-Easy-to-sell” BLACK downgrading from Croc to Python and made it into a very easy and confortable (other word used in Suburbia for UGLY) hobo, sprinkled it with gold and put a great big logo on it!

    That’s what they do the best…

    Honestly seeing bags like this makes me so mad!! I feel that these fashion houses deserve to be bankrupted (regardless of the current economic situation) if this is the kind of products their “creative” minds churn out.

    Lazy, lazy, lazy!!

    Yikes. That looks like the designer was actually trying to make it ugly. It’s worse than the knock-offs you can buy at Wal-Mart or JCPenny.

    I def think its thw shape that makes it so boring and nineties ish. These days the structure of the bag plays a much bigger role than just the textures

    Their handbag is not one of their better designs. Sort of flat looking and rather boring. Is certainly not up to the usual standards.

    I agree, the bag lacks personality. I’m not convinced. Sometimes I think designers intentionally up the price tag to give the bag a sense of value for its lack of conceptual value or what have you.

    I wish people had more sympathy for designers. It must be really hard to conjure up brilliant bags EVERY season. I think they’re allowed to have a few dry spells. Most of them redeem themselves eventually.
