It’s pretty, purple, and by Prada. Laying eyes on this piece, I had nothing more to say than it’s just what you expect from the House of Prada, it’s striking, classy, and very chic. At times, Prada enjoys experimenting in the Bag Lab by adding mad textiles or unattractive extras in attempt to create something new. This time around there’s no bows, chains, or fur; just polished calfskin leather with bold chunky gold toned hardware.
It’s not too simple and definitely not boring. A handbag can’t get any better when it’s 1.) Attractive and 2.) Comfortable. I’d argue that this handbag fits both categories. The slouchy body of this hobo arrives suspended off of a single flat, thick shoulder strap that your shoulders will thank you for after a day of long wear.
Of course I must mention that lovely shape that Saks is calling graceful; it’s timeless, and doesn’t appear to be too stiff with the slight slouch. The beneficial zipper pocket up front I’d use for my keys and Blackberry, and the pale pink leather lining contrasts nicely. If you’re more interested in a year-round color than trendy berry, a striking brown, caramel-like version is available in this Vitello Hobo style.
