The hobo: How do we feel? Hobo bags have been a tad passé in fashion circles for a little while, but for Spring 2012, a brand as different as Celine and Versace showed them on the runway. I don’t really feel like the trend is gaining any attraction among accessories lovers, but naturally, the increased runway visibility of the shape has meant that they’ve popped up on people’s arms a little more often than they have in the recent past. As of today, one of those people is actress Olivia Wilde.
In these photos, Olivia is carrying a Gucci 1970 Medium Shoulder Bag, which showed up on Gucci’s spring runway and is their lead bag from the collection. Personally, I don’t think there’s anything particularly special about the design or intriguing about the bag itself, but Olivia tends to wear a lot of Gucci on the red carpet, so I can see why someone who is a particular Gucci fan or who has a relationship with the brand would carry it. It’s not a bad bag by any means, it just doesn’t tickle my handbag fancy. How about you?
