Christian Louboutin Orylag Hobo: Trash Or Treasure?


The Christian Louboutin Orylag Hobo is about as hideous a bag as one could imagine. The slightly odd-shaped hobo design, which was part of Louboutin's handbag collection last season and measures an ample 16 x 11 x 6, receives a makeover for the Fall with orylag (rabbit) fur and dark brown patent leather trim. Features include a single top handle, zip top with a small magnetic snap tab, side zipped pockets and red satin-lined interior with zip and pouch pockets. This nonsensical design leaves a bad impression any way you look at it. The aforementioned side pockets resemble bunny thighs or, worse yet, Princess Leia's signature side hair buns. The magnetic tab is too small for this large bag and the all-over fur is placed in such a way that it looks like an orylag is sitting up with its' floppy ears in pointed attention. Freaky! For $3900 via Saks Fifth Avenue, I'd say, with all due respect, that Mr. Louboutin has "jumped the shark". Ladies, do you agree with me, or are you embracing this furry creation? Is the Christian Louboutin Orylag Hobo trash or treasure?
