Do you remember the story behind Botkier? I do. Monica Botkier was obsessed with handbags, but she struggled to find the “perfect” one. So she did something many of us wish we could do, she created the handbag of her dreams complete with all of the features she desired most. But when others saw her creation, they wanted one too. And that is how Botkier was born. That original handbag was called the Trigger and even though the original Trigger is no longer in production, it is still my favorite style from this designer. The Trigger name still lives on though, in other pieces inspired by the original. An excellent example is the Botkier Trigger Hobo you see pictured here!
This lovely piece may not be the original, but it shares with it some of the same characteristics. The signature Y is featured across the front, with two diagonal zippers making up the fork. The zipper pulls have the classic long tassels dangling from them as well. I really like this bag because of its hobo styling, making it perfect for hugging your body as it sits on your shoulder. I also like the contrast edging. The blue really pops against the black, giving this bag just a little extra touch of interest. For me, this bag would be perfect for casual everyday use.
The Botkier Trigger Hobo is available HERE at SHOPBOP!
Retails for $268.
