I know quite a few of you ladies have been waiting for updates on the Burberry Prorsum Vintage House Check Hobo that I’ve been going on and on about since I saw the sample pieces some time back. And while they may not be available at your local Burberry just yet, I’m happy to announce that they have been officially launched on the Burberry e-commerce site. Available in 2 different sizes, they retail for GBP850 (40 cm by 34 cm) and GBP750 (36 cm by 30 cm) respectively.
Having had the chance to try the larger one for myself, I can safely say that besides being functional, it is deep and roomy on the inside that’s also divided into 3 different compartments. There’s actually an additional zippered pocket in the middle, which is great for smaller personals like your wallet and keys. The shoulder strap is also adjustable, as is the girth of the hobo which can be made narrower or wider.
If however you are not blessed with height, do consider the Burberry Prorsum Vintage House Check Tote instead. Exactly the same as the former, it is just more horizontal than the hobo. And although the handles are not adjustable, it does come with an adjustable strap which means you can also sling this tote across the body, much like a satchel. Measuring 38 cm by 32 cm, this gorgeous tote retails for GBP750 a pop.
Am I getting the larger Burberry Prorsum Vintage House Check Hobo? I’m still a little undecided (it is made for women after all), so we’ll have to wait and see…
