Melie Bianco has created its fair share of "designer influenced" accessories, but I think it's at its best when it's marching to the beat of its own drum. When it strikes off on its own and refuses to bow to fads it creates practical purses like this Alyssa hobo.
The Alyssa is a far cry from the boho bags that pioneered the style. This purse is all business, with a plethora of pockets inside and out, ready to serve. The turquoise colored leatherette sees it cutting loose a little, but even that can't mask the Alyssa's smart design.
Few bags offer the functional features this handbag does. There's so much space and so many compartments that it might be too much. I imagine you'll have to carry this bag for some time to remember where you keep all your vital items. And if you're craving even more room you can undo the wraparound zip and expand it. While you probably won't use the feature on an ordinary day, it's perfect for weekend getaways.
The choice of carrying straps is another practical perk. The rolled handles are long enough for slinging over your shoulder, but we also get a longer carry strap. This cross-body option is ideal when the Alyssa is full, as it helps you better distribute its weight.
With so many labels downsizing it's interesting to see Melie Bianco bucking the trends. Perhaps it doesn't care about fashion as much as I thought it did! The Alyssa's too much bag for me, but pack rats will enjoy its $108 price tag.
