It took me a moment to come to the realization that this bag is in fact made by Rebecca Minkoff? I have been writing a lot about this designer lately. I mean, I have always loved her handbags, but they seem to be grabbing my attention a lot these days. Rebecca Minkoff does make some pretty awesome handbags and the prices are very reasonable. When I came across the piece you see pictured here though, I found myself feeling a little perplexed. As much as I love it when Rebecca Minkoff experiments, it seems she may have gone a little bit too far this time. So far, in fact, that I wouldn’t have thought this was Rebecca Minkoff if I didn’t know any better.
The Rebecca Minkoff Isobel Mixed Media Patchwork Hobo is a hodgepodge of neutral colored suede pieces stitched together with contrasting thread. To me, this feels more like something Coach would do. Not Rebecca Minkoff. After the initial shock wore off though, I was able to look at this piece a little bit more objectively. It consists of neutral colors after all, so it could have been a lot worse! I do like the tassels too. But I’m always a sucker for those! Plus you can never go wrong with a classic hobo shape.
What do you guys think of the boho-inspired Rebecca Minkoff Isobel?
