Marc by Marc Jacobs Strippy Zippy Resort Hobo | 80′s Retro Rocker Black Leather Shoulder Bag

Posted on: Mar 8

What I find most appealing about Marc Jacobs is his uncanny ability to predict what we American women are feeling most nostalgic for. Five years ago, it was the 70's striped shirts my babysitter wore, and right now it's the 80's badgirl style alá Joan Jett.

The Strippy Zippy Resort Hobo is basically my junior high fantasy handbag. Everything about it says badass, from the supple black leather to the abundance of zippered pockets. The shape, for me, is exactly how hobos are meant to be, not too big, not too small, and ever so gently rounded at the edges.

The detailing on the bag is on par with what we have come to expect from Marc Jacobs. The x front seam is a great detail that brings your eye naturally to the nameplate, which, in black enamel and shiny silver, goes perfectly with the hard-edged attitude of the bag completely.

The shoulder strap is the perfect length to hug right against your body, the way a hobo should. There are two interior organizational pockets for you cell or PDA, and an additional zipper pocket, to help you from losing all your little necessities. The only thing I don't really dig about the Strippy Zippy Resort Hobo is the price. At $458, I feel like I should be getting more than a blast from the past.
