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. Heck, he can even get a handbag onto the arm of Anna Wintour, which is a rare feat indeed.
Every season, I look forward to the arrival of Reed’s bags with great anticipation. They tick a lot of very important boxes: functionality, modernity, aesthetic durability. For Resort and Spring 2013, it seems as though Krakoff is making a major bet on blue as the color of the season, judging on the range of azure hues that are currently available for pre-order at Neiman Marcus. My favorite? The brand new Reed Krakoff Track Tote in bright cerulean python. Which one is your favorite?
