Monica Botkier is such a great designer, I always enjoy seeing new styles from her line. But when I stumbled across the Botkier Brooklyn Hobo, I found myself experiencing something I have never experienced before in terms of Botkier handbags.
Yep, it was an old-fashioned case of deja vu. And to make matters worse, I had absolutely so clue why. So I studied the Botkier Brooklyn Hobo closely, hoping that it would eventually come to me.
This beautiful bag features long tassels, something that it often associated with the Botkier name. And the lacing detail via metal grommets creates an interesting horizontal pleating effect. Wait… that’s it! That is what I have seen (and also written about) before! There is another handbag out there where grommets and lacing were used to create horizontal pleats.
