The email above features the not-yet-officially-released-online the Brompton Hobo (Item 29063; $298.00). J.Crew describes this leather purse as:
An icon in the making, this all-season hobo is that rare blend of elegant and easy-wearing, with a supple, burnished finish that only improves with age. (It's on the top of our must-have list this season.) We love the slouchy, luxurious shape, and rich, old-world patina (our designer handpicked this supple Italian cloud leather to mimic the lustrous, timeworn feel of vintage club chairs). The ingenious crafting includes a detachable shoulder strap (we can't live without it), a turnlock closure and and an abundance of roomy pockets for carrying everything you need (and then some). Antiqued-finish gold-plated hardware adds to the subtly elevated feel. From the office to off-the clock hours, it's our handbag heroine for autumn—and beyond. Interior zip pocket and split-patch cell pocket. Cotton twill lining. Part of the J.Crew Collection. Import. Comes with dust bag. Removable, adjustable shoulder strap fully extends to 22". 5 1/2" handle drop. 11"H x 15"W x 4"D.Is it just me, or is this one of J.Crew's lengthier product descriptions? I am all for them, as they tend to add more excitement around the item. The bag is cute but does n0t necessarily stand out as a "must-have". It kind of looks like the cousin of some of the other purses they already offer like the Leather Gallery Satchel (Item 13336; $298.00) & Gallery Hobo (Item 13339; $298.00). But that is just me. :)
On another note, this email (with a sneak peek to the July catalog) means that new arrivals and a new July catalog are just around the corner! :) Although, doesn't it feel like the last roll-out was just a short time ago?
What are your thoughts on the Brompton Hobo? Do you like the style- from the sequins to the style with its flowers?
