Not to be confused with the Vibrant Print Duffle Bag that I blogged about a few days ago which is all jute, the Burberry Prorsum Vibrant Woven Duffle Bag is 50% buffalo leather, 50% cotton, making up the intricate woven pattern you see on the hobo.
Measuring 40 cm across by 42 cm high, this massive hobo is extremely roomy. I would know, I took it out for a whirl today where it gamely took on a pair of gym shoes, a change of clothing, a toiletries kit, 6 tubes of Nespresso capsules, 4 buns, 3 magazines and then some. Sure, it was heavy, but when the hobo is over your shoulder, and pressed against your body, it somehow doesn’t feel as heavy.
I also love the fact that it comes with a zip pocket on the inside, good for securing small personals. The bright colour is another plus, and instantly perks up any outfit however dull it may be.
The only downside is the price, since SGD2975 is still a princely sum for most. I did, however, put it into perspective and compared it to another designer label’s nylon (yes, just nylon) duffle that comes with leather handles and retails for SGD2600, and suddenly it doesn’t seem that expensive anymore.
