Franchi Princess II Mini Hobo Bag | Elegant Rhinestone Covered Purse

Posted on: Apr 30

Franchi Princess II HoboFranchi has reinvented its Princess purse with the Princess II.

The original Princess was a clutch covered in glittering Swarovski crystals. The newest incarnation takes the form of a small hobo bag, which is every bit as elegant as its predecessor but a bit more practical. The Swarovski crystals have sadly been downgraded, but the black beads and clear rhinestones look just as stylish. Personally I prefer this fresher combination of gemstones, even if they don't have the same quality!

The Princess II retails for $265, which is only a shade less than the original clutch. That's disappointing in a way, because the jewels aren't as opulent. I expected the more affordable materials would net us a bigger discount. However we're also getting a little more bag for our dollar, and more practicality too, so perhaps it all evens out.

While the original Princess had a chic hard shell, this satiny revamp is soft and made for overstuffing. And unlike the clasp on the original, the zippered top shouldn't bust open when it's under pressure. The ropey chain shoulder strap is also more substantial than the ones we find on most evening purses.

There are definitely some improvements on this new Princess, but has Franchi done enough to tempt you to reinvest?
