I consider Kooba to be a relatively contemporary brand. For the most part, when I think of Kooba, I imagine younger-ish women carrying the bags (meaning teens thru 30s and maybe even into 40s). I know I am making a rather big generalization, but hey, it is what it is. However, here is a Kooba bag that is absolutely fabulous and one that a wide range of age groups should find appealing.
The Kooba Slouchy Leather Hobo is a bit sophisticated without being overly extravagant. First things first, does anyone else think this bag isn’t quite “slouchy”? To me, due to the angular zip closures, it is more structured than slouchy. I haven’t had the chance to see this bag in person yet, so perhaps in person it is slouchy. Either way, this isn’t a point worth arguing because the bag is rather fabulous. I’m loving this blue color, but if you aren’t, it’s available in white, mocha and celadon. The single shoulder strap is embellished with goldtone hardware and just the slightest bit of wrapped leather where the strap meets the bag. All in all, this is a bit different than what I’ve been accustom to expect from Kooba and I like it. Buy through Nordstrom for $595.
