Botkier Sydney Hobo


For those of you that were smitten with the Alexander Wang Donna Hobo's "rocker/biker chic" look, here's a more tailored (and less expensive) alternative from Botkier. This moderately-priced accessories label is all about creating stylish bags with enough urban design elements to satisfy the bad chick in all of us while still keeping those touches toned down to appeal to a broader spectrum of fashionistas. I know many felt the 'Donna' was simply not age appropriate for them. At 37, I'd never dream of attempting to pull off such a bag, but the Botkier Sydney Hobo is surprisingly refined for the sort of style it was created to convey. The 'Sydney' measures 15 x 11 x 4 with a roomy 20" strap drop and features 4 exterior pockets and several interior pockets for additional storage. It's available in brown or black lambskin leather (pictured), plum croc-embossed calfskin or antique silver suede-accented lambskin. While all four versions are interesting, only the brown and black interpretations are successful in approximating the "rocker/biker chic" look of the Alexander Wang Donna Hobo.
