Kooba Lauren Hobo

Kooba has always offered savvy designs with fairly reasonable prices. I saw the Lauren Hobo the other day and was instantly attracted by the simple design, not to mention the quality of the leather used. The image just does not do justice at all. The leather is so buttery soft, the bag collapses beautifully onto itself. The little bow detail on the side is very cute unlike a mismatched Prada tote I saw a while ago. The strap can be adjusted so a gal can wear it long or short.
I took a picture of the bag hoping to show the degree of softness. Also I think beige color is so much prettier than black for summer. This is definitely a simple classic hobo that a gal can get many years of usage. The measurement is 8 x 15 x7 inches and retails for $575, which is not bad at all. Is this savvy for you?

  1. I agree; I'm partial to the beige/tan/camel color myself. What a great bag - it has a touch of bohemian, as well as a more classic look to it. Great find! I'm not sure if it's savvy for my budget. It is, however, savvy for my lust list. :)

  7. It's a shame we can't get the silky soft feel and lovely leather smell online. I agree, black is not great for summer, but I think I'd be scared of messing up the beige one... somehow I can't keep a bag nice for 5 minutes!

  9. NOW WE'RE TALKING!!! i had not seen this bag before, and i love it!!! sadly i just ordered a different bag but if i don't like it i might just return it to get this one! love it!

    and black leather bags are so damn tricky. they either look bland and boring with zero interest or detail that can be seen well, or they have too many doo dads on them that make them look cheap!

  14. oh it looks deliciously soft, but I usually shy away these types of bags. I like my bags atleast the ones I use on most days, to have more structure. I'm all over fabric totes and hobos when I'm going to the beach though!
