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.
