I could truly use more yoga in my life. As much as working from home is absolutely amazing, sometimes, believe it or not, fashion blogging is stressful ya’ll! Many of you will know the word namaste, as it ‘is a common spoken greeting or salutation originating from India. It is a customary greeting when individuals meet, and a salutation upon their parting.’ The times I have been to Yoga class ending with namaste always brings a sort of calm feeling to me.

I assume Valextra wanted to give us a beautiful, subtle, and respectful design with the Valextra Namaste Big Hobo. And the design does just that.

Looking for sleek, refined, and classic? Valextra always delivers. There is not much to say about this design, what you see is what you get. But isn’t that pretty nice? We grow accustomed to all sorts of bells and whistles being included in many bags that we see daily, so it is refreshing to see simplicity. With all the emails we receive weekly asking about timeless classic, this is the answer. Buy via Barneys for $1,680.

    I saw these at Barney’s the other day. I agree with marta….boring. I would like to own a Valextra, but would prefer one of their classics – think square.

  • Staci

    It’s a very understated bag. The color is beautiful.

    Why would I pay $1680 bag for I can fall asleep carrying it?

  • louch

    I would imagine that without a purse organiser, it would be like a big black hole in there! That said, looks to be a beautiful, understated bag. Love the colour.

  • Alyson

    I like the style very much, and the color looks gorgeous! But I agree with the others- this style tends to become a bottomless pit of disorganization.

  • tasha

    You know, I have a love/hate relationship with fashion. On one hand, I find pieces beautiful and filled with creativity. On the other hand, I find the prices absolutely ridiculous, and imagine what would happen if people used their money to help people with mental illness, donating to charities, and helping poor countries.

    It looks lovely, streamlined and simple and I LOVE that it is a large hobo style with a proper zip closure. BUT the cost is ridiculous, when there are many simple leather hobos the same.

  • Zara

    I like the color! Its simple yet elegant, as well. Price won’t matter as long as the quality is very good. =)

  • edoardo

    The bag is really classic and a bit boring, but its color and the shape and the perfect lavoration amde it perfect!


  • Mochababe73

    Love the color. I am sure that because it’s a Valextra that the leather is top quality.
    But, yes, it is boring. I wouldn’t buy nor would I give it a second look. And, the price is a bit high.

  • Jacki

    I love hobo’s the simpler the better & the more appealing to me. So it makes sense I find this to be a beautiful bag.
