Let’s face it, folks: leather is sometimes a complete pain in the rear to work with. Because it is, you know, skin, it’s a lot easier to get a muted color effect out of it than a vibrant one. You know, pores and all that. Which is why I think that what they’ve done with the Dolce & Gabbana Miss Night and Day Metallic Hobo is so cool. The bag is made entirely of super soft leather, but it’s treated in such a way that it almost looks like satin from a distance.

Dolce & Gabbana Miss Night and Day Metallic Hobo

It’s got a subtle glimmer to it that tones down the flashiness just enough, and the color strikes a neutral note somewhere between beige and gold. It’s one of my favorite metallic shades and effects that I’ve ever seen, and the designers did a great job coaxing the look out of a material that can be more than a little fussy when it comes to showing color like this. On top of that, the leather is draped beautifully (another thing that can be difficult) and the shape looks comfortable and wearable. Bravo, Dolce! Buy through eLuxury for $1850.

    It very refreshing to look at. And I love double-strapped bags.

    Oh i am in LOVE.

    Mama like. I looked at the picture on the eLuxury website and the leather is to die for! If it only had a top zipper…… :-(

  • hazel

    Wow, that’s leather? It does look like satin! That’s amazing!

  • Emily

    That looks gorgeous! Are either of the straps removable though? I get tangled up too easily with an excess of straps!

  • Julie

    LOVE IT! Definitely did a second look when I read it was leather. Would love to touch it IRL!

  • milan

    it looks similar to many of the marc jacob bags with the tag on the side. It’s cute but hardly worth the price

  • me

    That’s very nice, a creative colour scheme.

  • Ingerid Prebensen

    Lovely!

    Looks quite similar to the Botkier James Hobo: http://shop.nordstrom.com/S/3023889/0~2376779~2374605~6021220?mediumthumbnail=Y&origin=category&searchtype=&pbo=6021220&P=1\

    But the D&G one is more sophisitcated.

  • Arm Candy Lady!

    Hmmm…this bag is very interesting & I sorta like it now that I know it’s NOT satin, the leather looks amazing! However, I must admit, the style of the bag & the name plate reminds me a lot of Marc by Marc Jacobs bags.

  • Crista

    Wow! I totally thought it was satin at first glance! I’ll bet it’s simply gorgeous in-person. One of those ‘photos don’t do it justice’ types of things:).
