It is no shock that I’m a Rebecca Minkoff fan. In fact, looking back on past RM posts I’ve written, almost all of them are positive. I’ve recently been obsessing over the Easy Rider Date Clutch. I mean, I’ve been obsessing over it so much that I am shocked that I haven’t bought it yet. Perhaps that is something I should put on my “to-do list”. For those of you who liked that clutch but are in the market for something a bit bigger, Rebecca Minkoff has something for you.


The Rebecca Minkoff Easy Rider Devote Hobo possesses many of the attributes of its smaller counterpart, which is why I like it. I recently discussed my dislike of short shoulder straps on large bags and I was a bit worried when I looked at this bag and saw only a 7″ drop. However, for some reason, it works. So, I guess I am a bit of a hypocrite, aren’t I? Oh well.

This hobo boasts gorgeous black (also available in white) pebbled leather which is always a great for a large bag. While buckle straps on bags can rub me the wrong way, I actually like it on this bag. I do wish the studded snap-flap pocket was a bit large, but I still like it. And the zip pockets with tassel pulls are a trend that have been growing on my over the past few weeks. Rebecca Minkoff has showed us one more time how she knows how to execute a great rocker-chic bag without it being too over the top. Buy through Shopbop for $635.

    I do like a lot of Rebecca Minkoff’s bags, and this is one of them. OK it is not as beautiful as the biker inspired Alexander McQueen faithful tote but has similar elements. I like the diagonally placed zips and the belted ‘waist’ . Maybe it is a little too balanced in design to be striking in originality but it is a bag with confidence. (fb)

    I love my Devote tote. I own one in black with the gold grommets. I am not a black handbag gal, but I would never give up my tote.

    I love the Easy Rider line of bags they are wonderful. I love this bag I have been down sizing lately, but I might just have to go back to using bigger bags because this one makes me so happy. (fb)

    I like the clutch version of this a lot more, but this is also nice. (fb)

    Love this bag. I bought this bag in white and it is gorgeous. Very roomy and slouches so it does’t look too big. I love the one belted version of the Devote. Just a great bag alll around.
