Pilar Abril gives the hobo a sophisticated makeover with the Coco.
Instead of the hobo's characteristic slouch, the Coco has clean smooth lines. Its curves mimic the hobos of old, but they come with much more elegance and refinement. In fact, the long tassel is the only bit of bohemia the Coco retains.
I really like the restraint Pilar Abril's shown here. She's resisted playing with bold colors and opted instead for more traditional brown and nude hues. They won't turn a lot of heads, but they won't fall out of favor as the trends change. The complementary stitching is also the only bit of embellishment we find. It's so subtle, but it really pulls this bag together.
The Coco isn't just good looking; it's also really practical. Its main compartment is sizable but well organized with an array of leather trimmed pockets. That reinforcement helps the pockets last just as long as the thick plainweave lining. There's also a selection of straps, and each one is removable for a clean, uncluttered look no matter how you're carrying it. And isn't it refreshing to use a hobo that doesn't collapse into a puddle of slouchy leather?
Considering its quality and timeless design, $298 is very reasonable for this Pilar Abril hobo.
