Some exotic embossing helps elevate this patent leather hobo from Michael Kors' MICHAEL diffusion line above the pack.
It's strange to call this bag a hobo, because it has none of the style's hallmarks. Its shape is much more angular than the hobo's usual crescent silhouette. It's got a bit of slouch about it, but we find that in many soft leather handbags. But most critically, it's missing that bohemian essence associated with a hobo. Its shiny exotic finish has much more urban edge than hippie vibe. In fact, I'm wondering why Lola Bernard's called it a hobo at all!
When we adjust our expectations, we discover a very serviceable and sexy handbag. Personally I prefer this modern style to a typical hobo, as it's much more on trend. Its black color screams city cool, and works well with the delicate stud and chain accents. A few more color choices may have widened its appeal, but clearly Michael Kors knows the look he was aiming for.
This patent leather hobo is a generously sized bag, which is both a blessing and a burden. Of course we shouldn't need to leave anything we want behind. But the combination of the large dimensions and relaxed finish make the bag quite unmanageable, especially when we're on the move. Make sure you store anything you need often in the interior pockets to avoid that dreaded black hole syndrome.
This Michael Kors hobo isn't a perfect purse, but at $398 it doesn't have to be. That's not a lot to spend on a genuine leather bag with such rich looks.
