There's a time and a place for It bags, the kind that will turn heads for one season and look passé the next. If you're looking for an off-the-moment status symbol, these trendy purses can't be beat. But as we all feel the effects of the financial crisis, these designer handbags tend to get passed over for wardrobe staples. If you're after something timeless, consider this Jil Sander hobo.
In a world of overworked handbags, this shoulder bag almost looks boring. But you simply need to readjust your thinking. By keeping the details to a minimum we appreciate what's left. We focus on the sumptuous soft feel of the suede, the rich chocolate brown color, and the way the shiny silver hardware pops against it. Of course the hardware is minimalistic too, with each piece serving a purpose beyond the superficial. The zipper offers security, the silver rings simply hold the shoulder strap in place. The metal is there because it needs to be, but it doesn't mean we can't admire each engraved piece.
The interior is generous without overwhelming. It's lined with satin for a touch of luxury, and equipped with a large zippered pocket. The chunky profile is made for functionality rather than style, allowing us to stash thick novels and fat wallets with ease.
The same suede that I love also makes me hesitate a little, because there are no protective feet on the base. Unless you handle this hobo with care, it's bound to show scuffs and scrapes in no time. But if you treat it like a princess, this Jil Sander purse may just be that wardrobe staple you're searching for.
