Chloe Heloise Hobo

I did not like the Heloise satchel but this hobo shape turns all the cons into pros. The larger bag can take the chunky ropey knots and the strap is also so much shorter so everything looks in place. The pin tuck details break up the giant mass of the bag so it isn’t one continuous blob. The little pocket on top is GREAT! With a bag this size, you will never find your keys (there is an interior phone pocket, every bag has that, of course) but it also adds some personality. It is back to basics and this definitely qualifies as a “one bag fits all” – we are seeing less of super specific bags that require daily change outs. Yes, things might get a little boring for a while but I suspect that it won’t be long before decadence makes a come back. We can’t seriously just have brown and black hobos for the rest of our lives!!! The Chloe Heloise hobo at Net a Porter for $1610.

  1. TOO BIG!!! .When is the huge bag thing OVER? The leather is pretty, but please .What are people carrying. OK, if you carry a lot back and forth to work, it’s OK. Or you’re staying over or traveling, but it’s ridiculous otherwise.

  2. Are you kidding me? I’m tall and loving this wonderful bag! It “holds it all”. If I shop I can throw packages in it and lighten my load by freeing up my hands. If not, I carry fewer things, and it’s lightweight and not a shoulder breaker (believe me, I know from rotator cuff surgery a couple of years ago). I agree, they are too expensive, but it is a “must have” bag!
