I’m stuck somewhere in between thinking that the Lockheart In The Loop Hobo is pleasantly intricate and way too busy. It definitely has quite a bit going on, and all of it fits into the ‘loop’ theme that’s implied by the name of the bag. They definitely stuck to their idea, something for which I give them points, but I’m still trying to decide if the idea works.
I’m almost inclined to say that it does because I recently saw one of Lockheart’s more intricate and over-the-top bags in the wild and thought it was absolutely gorgeous. Because the color and shape are muted, the plethora of small details create something that you can’t stop looking at, and everyplace you look you find something new that the designer did that you hadn’t seen or noticed before. It’s a veritable “Choose Your Own Adventure” of a handbag that gives your eyes a million different ways to go. Rock it with confidence and it won’t overwhelm you. Buy through Nordstrom for $595.
