Toned-down, down but still making all the necessary statements. The new Studio Hobo is the sleekest silhouette we have ever designed.
As a descendant of our Studio bag, the design intent behind Studio Hobo was to take the characteristics of the Studio collection and recreate a sleek silhouette with geometric detailing. Clean-cut corners were inspired by the popular folding blinds of the 1920s -referring to the glamorous era of Arts Décoratifs.
Hand-crafted from Italian cow leather.
Ultra-suede interior, one interior zip pocket, acetate handle.

LOOK AFTER ME
Mlouye’s founder and creative director Meb Rure hail from an industrial design background. In 2015, Meb decided to change gears and turn her energy towards Mlouye, a collection of exceptional handbags. Focusing on quality material, good design, craftsmanship, and sustainability, Mlouye reflects the epitome of quality over quantity.
Meb was highly inspired by the Bauhaus Movement’s artists and architects. From Mies van der Rohe’s works to Kandinsky’s paintings, to Aalto’s furniture, she acquired a rationalist vision of design by gleaning how they served a utilitarian purpose in a cleverly simple way. Mlouye merges industrial design and fashion, creating functional handbags made of luxurious and honest materials to improve people’s lives in small but important ways.
Innovation being the key factor alongside aesthetics, Mlouye has brought unexpected shapes with smart details, functionality and a new luxury feel with a contemporary price point.
