Gucci Large Babouska Hobo Purse
The House of Gucci definitely gave their 100% effort, and more, to stand out from all the other premium designers for this coming fall season. Have you Bagista’s seen their latest designs? All I have to say is… wow! Personally speaking, my wow is actually an “amazed-at-how-much-detail-and-studding-was-applied-to-their-goods”, wow. Check out their collection over at Saks (dot com). Pictured above is just one of the many new accessories by Gucci, meet the Large Babouska Hobo. To break it down a bit, it’s basically a simple monogrammed classic hobo with some dangling suede fringe and a couple of pounds of brass studding appliqué. I don’t know what you ladies think about this Babouska collection, but it’s a bit too tacky for my taste. You see, I can do monogram, but not monogram with constant layers of studs! I do dig the heart-shaped Gucci crest (which happens to be a Gucci newbie for quite some time) and the seventeen by fifteen inch dimension of the hobo is also suitable for my daily needs. Now, I don’t completely dislike Gucci’s Babouska line and I can see how some ladies would choose to carry a piece of this line, but when it comes to my personal preferences, I would much rather prefer something a bit less flashy, and lighter in weight!
