Zippers, I like. Buckle detailing, I like. However, there is one question I have to ask. Is there too much of a good thing going on with this bag? The Rafe New York Zippered Glazed Leather Hobo is a gorgeous bag yet the detailing might have gone just a bit too far. I like the shiny-glazed leather hobo. The deep, rich red color is divine and I do love the way the brushed goldtone hardware pops against the shiny leather. Yet, the over use of details still proves bothersome.

Rafe New York Zippered Glazed Leather Hobo
Some might call the zippers edgy or catchy, but it does nothing but make the bag look far too busy. Since there are so many things I do like about the bag, I decided to give it a second chance and attempt to see if it could work. While I kept looking at it, all I wanted was to erase some of the zippers. In fact, if the zippers along the front and the back of the bag were gone, this would be an entirely different bag and I would have nothing bad to say about it. Maybe it’ll grow on me, what do you think? Buy through Nordstrom for $475.
