"Thanks!" to many of you, including Irina, who shared the following email J.Crew sent this morning.
The email features the Brompton Mini-Hobo (item 63020; $258.00), which they describe as:
Our design team's fallen head over heels for the mini hobo—a luxe little sister to our iconic Brompton hobo. Smaller in size but deceptively roomy inside, this scaled-down favorite packs the same functional features you love about the original (think tons of pockets and a cross-body strap). In array of amazing hues and leathers, including a brand new, beautifully buffed matte version. Turnlock closure. Brass-finish hardware. Interior zip pocket, split-patch cell pocket. Cotton twill lining. Comes with dust bag. Import. Removable, adjustable shoulder strap fully extends to 20". 6 1/2" handle drop. 12"H x 10 1/2"W x 5"D.Now some might say J.Crew just got lazy and thought, "What handbag design should we do next? Hey the Brompton Hobo is really popular, let's just make it smaller and call it a day!" And who knows, those people might be right. However, it is a pretty darn cute bag and I actually like the smaller version more than its larger counterpart. :)
What are your thoughts on the Brompton Mini Hobo? Have you seen it in-person? If so, please share! :)
