Haute or Not: Badgley Mischka Platinum Label Connie Hobo Bag

Haute or Not: Badgley Mischka Platinum Label Connie Hobo Bag
Design is like a form of art where everyone has a different point of view, and what could be viewed as a masterpiece by some could also be viewed as an amateur attempt by others. And it’s a shame because most artists and designers mean well and produce lots of ‘hits’, but every now and then there’s a huge ‘miss’. Like this Badgley Mischka Platinum Label Connie Hobo Bag. Honestly, I would expect much more from the brand. The designing duo of Mark Badgely and James Mischka have been churning out incredible handcrafted evening gowns for years. The level of detail that they put into their red carpet creations is always nothing short of phenomenal. So I expected their foray into handbag design to have at least some of the same glitz and glamour and attention to detail. But they came up short. And for a line labeled ‘Platinum Label’, they really missed the mark. The Connie Hobo is what I would expect from a first time designer, not a duo with years of design experience. Not only is it an amateur bag, it is poorly designed. I mean really, that front pocket looks like an oversized coin purse slapped on to the front of the bag. The slouchiness of the leather is not sturdy enough to support the size of the turnlock pocket, and the overall bag isn’t necessarily bad, just unimpressive, coming from Badgely Mischka. But what’s your take? Do you think it’s haute or not?
