Salvatore Ferragamo Ceyla Hobo | Sophisticated Woven Leather Bag with Wooden Handle

Posted on: Feb 3

Salvatore Ferragamo Ceyla HoboWith this Ceyla Hobo, Salvatore Ferragamo proves Bottega Veneta isn't the only fashion house with a way with weaves.

It's been a long time since I've seen a woven finish as striking as this one. Salvatore Ferragamo has manipulated leather strips of various lengths to create the contemporary finish. It takes its cues from traditional weaves, but when we look at it closely there's much more texture and drama. That's also helped by the gentle color shifts in the brown leather. The various shades are subtle and complementary, and that ensures the finish stays sophisticated.

I'm in two minds about the wooden handle. On one hand it's quirky and playful, but there are a few key negatives to consider. The studs make the wood appear a bit richer, but I don't think they gel with the Ceyla's high class bohemian vision. They also encourage us to shift focus when we should be focusing on the woven finish. And while it's ergonomically shaped and smoothed, wooden handles are never as forgiving as soft leathers or fabrics. Personally I don't think the look is worth sacrificing comfort.

I also don't think we should make any compromises for $1890. With a different handle I'd be sorely tempted, but that hard handle gives me the willpower to resist!
