Running an online fashion magazine about handbags can be tricky at times, since handbags are only a sliver of the fashion world. Luckily, women (and men!) love handbags as much as we do and designers continue bringing us new purses to talk about. Even with the vast array of designs, there are slow slumps when we wait for more new bags to arrive and we must scour the internet looking for something different.

That is why I am happy to stumble upon the De Couture Chain Strap Hobo. The brand has only been covered three times on our site, the last post being from a year ago. There may not be many bags from the brand, but this is one that I want to cover.

It is simple why I like this bag. It is large, slouchy, and has a funky cool metal chain strap.

Some handbags have so much going on that I can review them for paragraphs. This, however, is not one of those bags. All else I can tell you is that the soft frame is made with calfskin and the shoulder strap is actually a leather strap covered with chains. All I hope for is the leather to be as soft and supple as I imagine, and then I can say that this bag is a great buy. You all know how I love a slouchy bag, so really, what more could I ask for? $963 via Luisa via Roma.

    Looks great, but I think the chain strap would dig into my shoulder, since I’m bad and usually put too much stuff in my bags. (fb)

    Is is just me or do the two pics of this bag side-by-side look like parts of the male anatomy? Consequently, I’m not sure I could carry one over my shoulder.

    I don’t know. All I think of is sack. Its not that appealing to me. And I love hobos and slouch but this one, a little too slouchy.

    Too slouchy for me. (fb)

  • BLynnT

    Definitely too slouchy for me, and I’m not a huge fan of the color either. (fb)

    Too, too slouchy. I don’t mind slouch, but it needs to have a little stucture somewhere. My stuff would just get lost. I can imagine being at a store and just having to dump my bag to find anything.
    It’s in a nothing color, but I do love the chain straps.

    I like slouchy bags…no…I love slouchy bags! But the chain would probably make it really heavy! Esp. with the leather woven in too! (fb)

  • Cate

    Where is the “like” button for this bag? I’m crazy about the chain strap!

  • Linda

    It’s cute, but it’s way too slouchy.

  • faith24

    i like the color and the chain straps but i am a big fan of structured bags so this one is an automatic “miss” for me

  • Jane

    I really like this bag. I feel like it would be so slouchy and smooshy that you would want to wear it everyday no matter what the outfit. The strap is so great what an idea to have a leather handle covered with chains. I believe it is a bag you could use for years to come. (fb)

    God i love this bag, i wish i can get it half the price, i am drooling already:-) (fb)

    I had a wallet from Hobo and I still have it, but I love the one from LV more. But very good quality, nothing to complain about. I noticed their originality in almost everything they promote and I`m sure their prices are not overrated.

    I’m glad you decided to blog about this bag. It’s a gem that needs expose. Good find. The large slouchy appeal is all me. (ipad)
