Leave it to Bottega Veneta to do something so intricate and yet still keep their aesthetic so classic and streamlined. They’re playing the sequins trend perfectly with the Bottega Veneta Ebano Paillette Hobo.
Hobo Bags(Page 4)
I love a great big slouchy bag that I can throw over my shoulder and run out the door with. As much as I love to dress up and look all fancy, I am admittedly more of a casual chic kind of gal.
Well I didn’t mean it this way, but apparently today is Texture Day at PurseBlog. Earlier this morning, we talked about the gorgeous quilting of the Bottega Veneta Quilted Briefcase, and now we’ve got the interesting destruction that has been visited upon the Givenchy Eclipse Cut Hobo.
What is this? Do my eyes deceive me? Have I gone delirious from too many hours spent clacking away at my computer keyboard? Have the recession gods chosen to shine down upon us for a brief, fleeting, beautiful moment?
Has Gucci released a leather hobo with a price tag substantially under $1000?
What a perfect season for Be&D to make a comeback. They first did multitudinous studs years ago, before it was popular and trendy, and then they mysteriously disappeared from the face of the earth for a little while.
Their studded bags really didn’t tickle my fancy back then; they were shiny, smooth, and gold, which is really not my thing.
Like it or not, studded bags are a huge hit still for fall. So many of us continue to love the studded trend while others are ready for it to be over. While this may be a newer endeavor for some designers, the duo behind Be&D has been adding studs to their handbags for years.
It’s been a while since we had a good ol’ fashioned bashing of an insultingly overpriced Versace bag, and as they say, there’s no time like the present. So let’s talk about the Versace Rose-Embellished Jacquard Hobo, shall we?
I know you guys enjoy this as much as I do.
I am very, very interested to see what Phoebe Philo will do during her tenure at Celine. I loved the Philo years at Chloe; after all, they did spawn some pretty legendary handbags (the Paddington, anyone?). Celine made some bags I liked quite a bit last season, which was a nice turnaround from their normally staid but bland fare.
It’s rare that I see a technique that I haven’t seen used somewhere before. After all, I spend 40 hours a week (sometimes more, depending on how inefficient I am) looking at handbags; if a weird leather trick or a trim idea or a shape is out there, I’ve probably come across it out of professional necessity at some point.
