Jack Rabbit Collection: The Auteur BagThe Jack Rabbit Collection Auteur Bag may be the best implementation of handle options I’ve ever seen on a bag. I hate when there’s just extra stuff hanging all over the place, willy-nilly (see: The Foley + Corinna Stanton Convertible Tote), but I agree that having a choice of straps is convenient for a lot of people. So the folks at Jack Rabbit Collection did something brilliant: they gave you a long strap with a clip and a D-ring.

You can either clip it regularly for a messenger bag or stylish low hobo, or loop it through and clip it back at the other side of the handle to create a shorter strap and a more traditional hobo. Either way, the bag looks like it was meant to be carried like that and there’s no extra stuff to get in the way or obscure the design of the bag. And it’s a design that should be seen: a functional layered hobo made of soft, smooth black leather. Combined with the brilliant handle design, I think this is the first innovative bag I’ve seen in a while. Buy through ShopBop for $420.

    I love this strap solution. I actually have a Sherry Wolf hobo from a few years ago that has the same type of strap option with a clip to make it shoulder or messenger, and it is great looking and easy to carry either way. I am so glad to see another designer have a take on this, as it is genius! No extra sets of straps to look annoying or get in the way is a plus in my book.
