Marni Hobo Bucket Bag: More or Less

Marni Hobo Bucket Bag

It’s only natural that I wish there was more to this bag, but then again, I love the shape. It’s a totally relaxed take on a bucket tote but it’s not a bona fide hobo. Essentially, it’s an easy throw-around bag that’s got more personality (and somehow more elegance) than your average big bucket.

The all-lambskin bag comes in subtly contrasting shades of dark sea green and faded “carbon” black, but I think it would be cute if Marni had opted for different textures on the lower and upper portions instead. A slight difference in shades is great since the last thing any of us need is yet another color-blocked bag. As for the necessary elements, that attached pouch on the inside is key. This is a big bag with no other organization – without that case, I would spiral into a mad rage when I realize it’s impossible to find anything. When your minimal bag offers maximum space, just make sure you don’t throw your whole life in there at once.
