When studs re-surged in the handbag world, we suddenly found the market to be over-flooded with studs. That look surely did not work for everyone nor did it have true staying power, but studs have not completely left our sight. I appreciate a little bit of studding, especially when it is done properly.
With the right amount of studs, Olivia Harris knocks this bag out of the park.
The design of the Olivia Harris Small Studded Hobo calls out to every downtown girl out there with a touch of rugged edge with the perfect combination of tassels, studs, and braids. This bag exudes ease and no-fuss, so much so that when I first spotted it, I instantly wanted to sling it over my shoulder. The leather color has been coined spice, perfectly suited for the hue.
I am most intrigued by the braided shoulder strap and the diagonal exterior zip pockets. Of course there are the studs I spoke of earlier, but when you see the overall design, they take a back seat. Buy via Neiman Marcus for $355.
