Versace Embossed Leather Hobo | Mud Brown Medusa Logo Handbag

Posted on: Feb 22

Versace Embossed Leather HoboAs a handbag lover, it's only natural for the big names like Prada, Valentino, and Versace to set my heart racing. But all too often it feels like these famed fashion houses don't deserve my admiration. This embossed leather hobo is one of those times when it feels like Versace is merely phoning it in.

This bag started out with such promise. Its braided shoulder strap is as gorgeous as it is substantial, and an elegant flap falls softly to emphasize the leather's quality. But cast your eyes down and you're bound to be as crestfallen as I am.

The brown color of the leather is downright boring, and I have a hunch Versace knows it. Why else would it call the shade mud? The unattractive shade is matched by this hobo's bland shape. With little embellishments to draw the eye, Versace had an opportunity to experiment with the silhouette. It didn't though, and the bag is poorer for it.

And finally there's the most controversial element, that familiar Medusa logo embossed near the base. I appreciate the gentle effect of the embossing, but I'm still not a fan of this branding. without any other real elements of note it seems like Versace relies on this to impress us, almost as if it's saying "See, this is a Versace bag, so you should be happy to spend!"

I'm sorry Versace, I'm not happy to spend; particularly when you're expecting me to fork out $1625 for the privilege of owning this snoozefest.
