I’ve grown accustom to handbags with unique names. You know, names after people, places, inspiration, etc. So, it does come as a bit of a surprise to find a handbag that does nothing but name the designer and give a bit of a description of the bag. I am not saying there is anything wrong with this, I am just not used to it. This being the case, I almost skimmed right past the B. Makowsky Metal Edge Pleated Hobo.
I am very glad I didn’t. It was the lush purple leather that drew me in. The goldtone hardware frames this handbag perfectly – a little here, a little there, magnifique! Purple is definite a color worth noticing and so is this bag. I actually have taken quite a liking to the curved seams, folding and pleating. Sure, that combination could be disastrous, but in this case, it makes perfect sense. And for a little extra fun, the bag is lined with leopard lining. Ferocious! Buy through Nordstom for $268.
