  1. Hi,

    apologies if this bag already has its own thread, but I couldn’t find much information about this bag. I’ve been considering getting a hobo from BV for years, but as it hasn’t been on the very top of my wish list until recently so I’ve never pulled the trigger. I’m not that into fashion so when I finally was ready to have a more serious look at a BV hobo I discovered that they had changed their designs. I stumbled across this “Banana” bag online the other day and I’m intrigued by the weave/braiding of the leather. However, I can’t seem to find much information about it (or pictures for that matter). I don’t have the opportunity as of now to look at it in store. Does anyone here own it, or has anyone here seen it and tried it on in real life? What do you think of it? I’d appreciate any information and opinions, thank you so much!

  2. I personally think it’s beautiful but I’m not rlly into how they did the handle... (looks a little cheap imo) and the price omg the price is beyond ridiculous.

  3. Thank you for your input! You point out the two main things I dislike about it too... the handle looks flimsy as if it can’t hold the weight of the bag with my stuff in it. And it’s super expensive for this type of bag.

  4. Basically, for what is a cross between the ol' med Veneta and a small belly without a decent handle I find the price at least 30% too high.

  5. I’d sooner buy a vintage BV hobo tbh.

  7. Right? If it only it had a better handle I don’t think price would bother me quite as much... I think.
