There are two Reed Krakoff bags that have stood out since the brand launched several years ago: the Boxer Tote and the Atlantique.

In the short life of the Reed Krakoff brand, its namesake has well proved that he knows a thing or two about the kinds of handbags that women want to buy. You would think that we would have guessed that about him going in; after all, Krakoff is the head of none other than American handbag behemoth Coach, a brand that just keeps on growing and improving under his leadership.
