Architecturally inspired, clean and modern lines are the design hallmarks of a Margiela handbag. While the primary line generally sells for $1,000 and up, this is a much more affordable choice for most of us. MM6 by Maison Martin Margiela is the brands diffusion line. This brand provides the Margiela style at a much lower price point. At $495, this bag makes a big statement for spring and summer!
What caught my eye about the perforated Hobo is the sleek and modern triangular design of the bag. Clean and simple, it offers a lot of visual impact. I can see this with so many of today’s contemporary clothing designers. The imported, perforated leather is the second aspect of this bag that really catches your eye. It looks light and airy and fresh for summertime! An added benefit of the perforation is the overall light weight of this bag. Carrying it would be like having a cloud on your shoulder!
The final simple detail is the wrapped leather at the handle. It finished and grounds the design of the bag. My only concern about the bag is whether the handle would stay clean. While there are products that can help protect it from getting dirty, it would be my primary concern. But, at that price, you could easily wear it a season and buy something new next year!
The shoulder strap features a 10″ drop and the bag closes with a snap. Full-lined with an inside open pocket. The bag is an extra roomy 20″W x 12″H x 1″D. Throw in a swim suit and flip flops and you are ready for a quick jaunt to the pool!
