Bally Milip Hobo | Chic Brown Calfskin Handbag with Hook Accent

Posted on: Aug 10

Bally shows it does sleek and chic like few other handbag designers with this Milip Hobo.

The clean lines and classic looks of the Milip are what drew me in. I began to imagine pairing the brown moleskin toned calfskin leather purse with all of my favorite outfits. But there's something about the Milip that's put me off.

It's not the $950 price tag, although that's more than I'd pay for a bag I didn't consider to be perfect. No, it's that hook accent which hangs from the top flap. It's all a matter of personal taste of course, but I think the metal hook with its military inspired medallion simply clutters this elegant design. I expect just as many fashionistas to say that it brings individuality to this fairly traditionally styled bag though. What a shame Bally didn't make it detachable to suit all our tastes!

The interior does help to bring me back on side though, with its ample dimensions and durable, leather trimmed pockets. It doesn't offer much more than many hobo bags, but it's the attention to detail that makes using the Milip feel like a luxurious experience. I'm also a fan of the long handle, which stylishly flares out at the ends.

I'm just not sure it's enough to make me overlook that busy hook accent, especially at this price point.
