Bottega Veneta takes a break from its usual woven handbags with this Breezy hobo.
I must admit, I'm struggling to see the hobo in this hobo. With its boxy shape, relative structure, and lack of bohemian embellishments it really doesn't look like any hobo I've ever encountered. Frankly it seems like more of a tote, but a good looking tote at that.
Never underestimate the sophisticated, gentle contrast of black on black. When it's created using luxury materials like this pebbled leather and snakeskin, it's so much the better. I also love Bottega Veneta's use of more python on the straps, even though I know we're paying a premium for all that luxury skin.
I wouldn't mind the $3900 price tag so much if Bottega Veneta has remembered the basics, but unfortunately there are just too many niggling issues here. Its platform base doesn't have any metal feet, a real oversight seeing how fragile snakeskin can be. I'm also disappointed by the open top. Sure it makes access easy, but it seems anyone carrying a purse as classy as this shouldn't have to worry about spilling their cargo.
The little touches like the suede lining and luxury materials make me feel pampered, but I'd much rather that Bottega Veneta focused on the basics. Without them the Breezy feels like a bag that's all show and no substance.
