    Default Botkier Brooklyn Hobo

    Botkier Brooklyn Hobo


    Monica Botkier is such a great designer, I always enjoy seeing new styles from her line. But when I stumbled across the Botkier Brooklyn Hobo, I found myself experiencing something I have never experienced before in terms of Botkier handbags.

    Yep, it was an old-fashioned case of deja vu. And to make matters worse, I had absolutely so clue why. So I studied the Botkier Brooklyn Hobo closely, hoping that it would eventually come to me.

    This beautiful bag features long tassels, something that it often associated with the Botkier name. And the lacing detail via metal grommets creates an interesting horizontal pleating effect. Wait... that's it! That is what I have seen (and also written about) before! There is another handbag out there where grommets and lacing were used to create horizontal pleats.

    But who was the designer? Ah yes, it was the Michael Kors Zuma Satchel, a bag I wrote about back in August. The tassels may not be there, but the concept certainly is the same. The two bags even have rectangular metal fobs hanging from the strap. Perhaps this is all a coincidence, but you have to admit the similarities are rather eerie. Just for the record though, I think Botkier did it better. I'm such a sucker for tassels!

    The Botkier Brooklyn Hobo can be found at Shopbop.com. It measures 12" x 17" and it retails for $495.

    It's nice, but I'm not really that crazy about it.

    I love the shape and the leather seems super soft but I don't care for all of the tassels.

    This one is not grabbing me. I'm not sure I like how it drapes.

    Not a fan of this one at all. All those tassels are just too much IMO.
