The Derek Lam Nadia Leather Hobo is getting a lot of attention by many style savvy professionals. Rachel Zoe has lauded this bag on her blog and other fabulous bloggers are writing about this sharp and edgy bag. A fact that caught my attention after I started to research it! So, this review is definitely due for our readers! Others are lauding the beautiful, unique, soft and subtle hues of the tie-dye version for $3,950 at Derek Lam or the basic but sleek black version of this bag. However, the dark brown cognac color is the one that really spoke to me as a bag you could carry every day!
At first glance, I’m a tad bit reminded of the bag Anne Hathaway carried in Devil Wear’s Prada, but in reality it is a balanced bag with asymmetrical details. The off-kilter front pocket adds a wonderful graphic architectural element to this sophisticated vertical hobo styling. I adore the movement and softness of the tassle which is absolutely the perfectly length to balance the bag. Some tassles are overpowering and oversized for their bag but this one is just right in my humble opinion!
The double shoulder straps have a 7″ drop so it will fit nice and close to your body without bouncing off your hip which is a major pet-peeve of mine! A bag that sits on the side of your hip will emphasize your hips. Good for some body types, but not all. The side zipper pocket keeps must-have items easily accessible. And the magnetic closure keeps interior items secure. Inside, there is a zipper pocket with two open pockets. Small brass details really stand out without being overpowering. The structure of the bag speaks for itself!
The color is rich and perfect for many seasons of wear. I adore the fact that this bag is so versatile for your wardrobe so you really get a lot of bang for your $1190 bucks from Saks Fifth Avenue
