Derek Lam Hildegard Hobo, Handbag of the Day
Set against this dark grey dress, the Hildegard Hobo from Derek Lam looks a bit darker than it does in some of its other photos, but that illustrates how versatile the natural dark cream color of the soft leather bag is, changing by degrees to suit your look. The bag features brass hardware, including an accenting ram head link on the front amidst the pintucked gathers at the top of the bag's body. The leather handle is flat with only a 6" drop, but there is an attachable padded leather shoulder strap that is included. There is an open top and a suede lining, with a small leather coin pouch included for storing smaller items that need a bit more securing. It measures 13" x 9" x 6". Price: $1,800.
