How cute is this new hobo bag from Mansur Gavriel?! I am in love! This cute, soft little bag is the Mini Swing shoulder bag, and it is just the right size.

The Mansur Gavriel Mini Swing shoulder bag is a soft, small hobo bag which features a pebble leather finish, and suede interior. The bag has “mini” in the name, but it really is the size a of typical “small” handbag.

What fits inside Mansur Gavriel mini Swing bag

The Mansur Gavriel Mini Swing shoulder bag fits my wallet, sunglasses, lipstick, iPhone, and keys. I can also place a mask on top, and then zip the bag up. It’s perfect if you only need to carry around your essentials. If you need more room, I recommend looking at the larger sized hobo bag from Mansur Gavriel, which is the Mansur Gavriel Swing shoulder bag. I am thinking of picking up the larger size in ivory. The leather is so soft, the light ivory color looks beautiful.

This is a casual, eveyday bag. The Mini Swing bag looks great with jeans, urban sweats, workout outfits, and spring sundresses, skirts, and shorts. This is the perfect casual, everyday bag for the upcoming year.

Please note, the interior of the Mansur Gavriel Mini Swing shoulder bag does not feature any pockets. It is one compartment. Since the bag is small, you don’t really need to worry about losing anything. I don’t miss having a pocket, unless I am stuffing multiple receipts into the bag. Then, I fold the receipts and try to put them at the bottom of the bag so they don’t get in the way when I reach for my keys or sunglasses.

Looking ahead to 2022, hobo bags are everything. While they won’t be the only IT bag style, the hobo will be one of the top three must-have handbag styles. Both structured and soft hobos will be hotter than hot, and this bag will be on fire! Love!

If you are looking for an IT bag to be your everyday bag now, and into the new year, this is the perfect bag! Which color are you eyeing?

Thanks for stopping by!

The structured hobo is one of the hottest handbag silhouettes of the year. This IT bag style is being spotted on the streets, runways, and pretty much everywhere! The structured hobo was a huge handbag trend back in the mid to late 1990s, and it has returned with a vengeance! So, move over pouch clutch, the structured hobo is here!

The hottest structured hobo bag is priced well over $1000, and it sells out almost as quickly as it is placed on a store shelf. This makes it both pricey, and hard to get! Thankfully, there is an IT bag brand which offers equally hot-on-the-street bags for well under $1000. Mansur Gavriel has debuted their own version of the structured hobo, and it is already proving to be a hot IT bag. You can read my review here.

Of course, even a moderate priced bag can be pricey. This version for under $100 offers the same IT silhouette of the structured hobo for an affordable price. Love that!

Mansur Gavriel Candy Bag review

mansur gavriel candy bag review and description

Mansur Gavriel has come out with a structured hobo! As you know, the structured hobo is hotter than hot right now, and with polished leather, it’s even hotter. This classic hobo silhouette was popular in the late 1990s, and this year it really is the most important style in handbags. Love!

The new Mansur Gavriel Candy Bag is a beautiful version of the structured hobo. It is made with strong leather and fine craftsmanship; what we have grown to love about Mansur Gavriel. The Candy Bag by Mansur Gavriel is a medium sized hobo bag with one slit pocket on the inside. It is roomy enough for everyday essentials, as well as a couple extra items such as a mask and a pair of winter gloves.

Mansur Gavriel’s Candy Bag has debuted in five colors; classic black with flamma interior, sky, golden yellow, caramel (my choice), and claret. It’s a good combination of seasonal hues, and classic colors.

I am loving my Candy Bag because the size is ideal for everyday use, and the bag itself is lightweight. The Mansur Gavriel Candy Bag fits nicely on my arm and stays put; something you would not expect from shiny leather. Mansur Gavriel always puts thought into how a bag fits and feels while being carried; one of the many things I love about the brand.

Many polished leathers scratch easily. This bag does not. I am not sure how Mansur Gavriel was able to treat the leather to make it not scratch as easily as other polished leathers, but they did it! Love that! It will occasionally get fingerprints and smudges, but those wipe off easily with a soft cloth. I will admit, I wipe off smudges with the bottom of my shirt; works like a charm. haha
