I want a new hobo. No real reason why, I just do. That’s reason enough, isn’t it? While I wish I could simply buy just about any bag I look at, I typically try and give it a bit of thought before any purchase is made. After a bit of consideration, I have to say that I am liking what I am seeing here with this Kooba bag. Per usual, it is the sturdy yet fabulous leather that initially grabbed my attention.

Kooba Gabi Hobo
Beyond the leather, I am also loving the old English brass hardware and saddle-stitched buckle accenting. All of these aspects come together for the Kooba Gabi Hobo making it an instant hit. It is also the single flat shoulder strap that adds something unique to the bag. Kooba is great at picking just a few details and working closely on them to ensure that the concept is totally flawless. Speaking of the shoulder strap, the 10″ drop means there is plenty of room for this bag on your shoulder without having it come up too close. And another great thing about this Kooba bag has to be how versatile the bag is. In this case, versatility applies to both one person and her use of the bag as well as the age spectrum that is covered. Mom and daughter alike would look great carrying it. Buy through Bloomingdale’s for $495.

    Love this bag but my only issue with it is the llong shoulder strap. It reminds me too much of a “old mom” purse. Wish it just had a shorter strap to make it more stylish!


    Gorgeous style and the leather looks amazingly soft.
