Ed Hardy’s back to his self-promoting best with this Tina hobo.
It’s got the slouchy silhouette we expect to see on a hobo, but that’s where the similarities end. The bohemian vibe typical of the style has been stripped away and replaced with a much brasher attitude. I can’t say I’m enamored by the look, but the metallic finish and bold logos are very Ed Hardy. If you’re a fan you’ll probably eat them up, and if you’re not this bag won’t change your mind.
I can stomach the logos, the golden finish, and even the too shiny surface. But the tassel accents and handles take things a step too far. These plastic looking elements make a cheap bag look even cheaper. At $140 I wasn’t exactly expecting high-end design, but I’ve seen many handbags appearing much more sophisticated at this price point.
The best thing I can say about the Tina hobo is that it’s practical. Not especially so, mind you, but it has enough pockets to keep its generously sized interior organized. There’s also a magnetic snap which keeps our possessions safe enough. Not as safe as a zipper would have, but it does the trick.
Frankly when commenting on adequate design features is the best you can say about a bag, you’re probably not going to spend money on it. But I’ve never been an Ed Hardy fan. If you are I’m sure you’ll find a lot more to like!
