Coccinelle marries preppy chic with edgy grommets to create this eye-catching Mary hobo bag.
As with any metallic embellishment, grommets tend to make a purse look edgy and dangerous. But Coccinelle balances the look with buttery soft leather and a cutesy bow. Rather than appearing confused, as so often bags combining different accents can, Coccinelle creates something new and exciting here.
I'm digging the front, with its gusseted pocket and head-turning accents, so it's a shame to see the back is boring and bare. There's not a pocket or a pleat, not anything of interest at all! I know many designers skimp on these details to bring down the price, but for $325 I expect more.
Thankfully, Coccinelle doesn't forget the features inside. There's everything we could ask for here: durable leather lined pockets, a clever design, and plenty of usable space to spare. But it does opt for style over function when it comes to the handle, a strap which is just a shade too short for comfortable carrying.
It's not perfect, but the striking good looks of this Mary hobo should convince many girls to overlook its flaws.
