Marni Triangle Slouchy Hobo

The other day, I walked by Marni only to stop short when I saw this adorable slouchy bag in deep eggplant at the window display. Of course I just had to go in to investigate for myself. A gal can't have too many everyday bags, especially when it's so unique. The lamb leather is so butter soft and supple. I really liked the gathering detail on both sides of the bag. The contrasting double handles add that element of casual chic to this tote. Not to mention, this tote is very light weight.
If there is anything negative about this tote is the handles are for handheld only, which can become an inconvenience if a gal needs both of her hands for chase after a bouncy toddler. And, the lamb leather is so soft, the surface might be easily scarred by contact with rougher or sharper surfaces. I have several lamb skin bags and scratches are unavoidable. There is a zip pocket along with a patch pocket for storage and this bag is definitely roomy enough to carry anything including the kitchen sink. This hobo retails for $1765 and measures 15" at the widest x 4d x 15h.

  4. That shape is so unusual! I love nothing more than slinging a bag over a shoulder so I would find this so impractical.

  6. Most of my bags are handheld only -- no problem since I'm not running after any kids!

  11. Fantastic find! You have a very keen eye for details :D Too bad about the handles, it would've been more versatile with it a bit longer although it wouldn't look as wicked awesome. Tough decision isn't. Always pros and cons to deal with.
