Help me understand why there is NO hype about this R. Minkoff bag?

I love this bag! It is like the Morning After but with a shoulder strap! Its gorgeous, IMO. I was ecstatic to find it, especially in the Royal Blue, and since then I have searched high and low for more colors in this style.

I find it perturbing that no one seems seems to be hyped up about the MA Hobo?
The MA and the MA mini have gotten women all riled up in a frenzy, but it seems like no one cares about the MA Hobo.

How come?

GUNG .... I love this bag...I think it's sharp as hell....the color may be why it's not 'trendy' right now...even tho I love blue bags.

I actually like this style better than the morning after or the matinees. Not a big fan of Rebecca Minkoff in general but I do like this hobo style :smile:

I think it's perhaps with the original you can just add the longer strap to it and overall the styling is better I think. I'd rather add the longer strap. I love hobos but the MA hobo doesn't do it for me.

I ordered this bag in royal from Delcina for my birthday but had to return it because it was so much bigger than I had imagined. Because of its size, it felt awkard for me when I carried it on my shoulder. It doesn't slouch well like the nikki because of its long rectangular shape. I was quite dissapointed because I had purchased it as my birthday present. So I returned it and got the RM Nikki instead and really loved it. When I called Delcina regarding the return, the SA said that the RM hobo was acutally the most popular style among their staff. I guess to each her own.;)

Really? Cool! It seems like no one cares at all about it! Im glad you like it. Do you have one?
No I don't....but it's on my 'short list'....I'm planning on two major bag purchases next year and that patent bag is def. one of them. I just hope she's still available then.

My favorite RM bag gets absolutely no play either. I went to Nordies and tried them all on for size and the only one that I liked was the Elisha.
I'm with you. Love Elisha, but wish she came in more colors! If I could find a stamped one (the leafy pattern, not the basketweave), I'd grab her in a heartbeat.

I like the look of the MA Hobo better than the regular MA. I think RM's other styles have sort of been overshadowed by the hype around the MA. I don't think that's a bad thing. Wouldn't you rather have something that is totally hyped up where everyone has it?

I haven't seen this bag before. Is this just the same as the MA with a strap? I like it from the pictures you've posted.
