When I think Badgely Mischka, I really don’t think handbags at all. To me, they were a glamorous eveningwear brand, and I managed to sort of ignore their handbags for awhile, sure that their bags just wouldn’t work out. But they are, and I’m quite pleased with their expansion now.

Take this Badgely Mischka Pintucked Cross Zip Crossbody Hobo. There is a lot going on, yes, but I am convinced that in the realm of real life, removed from the harshness of the stock photo, this bag will thrive and look good. The hobo brings together a couple of trends and executes them with its own unique flourish.

Badgley Mischka Pintucked Top Zip Crossbody Hobo
It’s a hobo that’s taller than normal, ensuring maximum slouch when you throw it over the shoulder, yet it also has a crossbody strap. So that way you get some give when you wear it as a crossbody, unlike many stiff messengers. Instead of reading tacky, the vertically aligned pintucks add power to the otherwise plain front, and are probably quite flattering, not to mention easily zigzag-able if you choose to carry it slouchy. And the beauty of it is that it looks like a capable, strong everyday bag, not a flimsy evening bag. Badgey Mischka, you can play two sides of the field. Buy through Nordstrom for $395.
