Isaac Mizrahi Logo Hobo Purse | Camel Suede Signature Handbag

Posted on: Apr 3

Isaac Mizrahi is an international powerhouse, famous for his classic, yet quirky, designs. Perhaps that's why this fairly ordinary looking hobo leaves me a little cold.

To call it a hobo is perhaps a bit of a misnomer. It doesn't have the classic crescent silhouette, and there's barely a slouch to be seen. But that's what the great Isaac Mizrahi wants to name it, so who am I to argue?

The concept of the complementary tan stitched logo against the camel-colored suede is a sound one. After spying so many garish nameplates and signature prints, I'm glad to see one toned down. But the execution is just a little off. The large print makes the letters look a little random, and if you didn't know what they were spelling out you'd probably never guess. The effect ultimately proves distracting rather than subtly chic.

The dark brown leather tabs and trim are supposed to be eye-catching accents, but they never quite gel with the other subdued details. There’s nothing wrong with a little contrast, but this effort falls short.

Yet for all its flaws this is the sort of handbag that won't go out of fashion as trends come and go. If you're after an evergreen accessory, this might just fit the bill.
