I said just a few days ago that I had yet to find a See by Chloe bag that entirely tickled my fancy. And while that’s still pretty much true, I do like the See by Chloe Tag Along Hobo more than I’ve liked a lot of their bags in the past. And no, it’s not just because the name reminds me of Girl Scout cookies. But, of course, that doesn’t hurt.
I like the combination of matte black leather and navy blue patent – when done correctly, the unexpected use of both of those colors can look very hip and modern, and that’s exactly what they achieve here through the differences in texture. I’m not entirely sure about the double flaps that form the bag’s “closure,” since they might just mean that my bag is forever gaping open, but I’d have to try it in person to know. I also wish that the hobo strap was flat instead of rolled – do rolled handles fall off of anyone’s shoulders except mine? All in all, though, a solid effort. Buy through ShopBop for $650.
