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.
Reed Krakoff Handbags and Purses(Page 2)
Last week was quite a doozy, and while many of us who were out of power and inconvenienced by Superstorm Sandy are back in the office today, many are still completely displaced (please donate to the relief efforts).
Among the more luxuriously displaced was Anna Wintour, who left her Greenwich Village townhouse and briefly moved into the Mark Hotel on the Upper East Side to weather the storm.
And in order to own the above alligator version, I’d probably have to do that literally – rent payments would have to go toward a bag mortgage of some kind. (Feel free to make up your own joke about how New York City apartments are tiny anyway and insert it here.) The Reed Krakoff Alligator Uniform XL Satchel might be worth it, though, particularly if I can get an air conditioner installed in there.
Last night marked the 2012 Council of Fashion Designers of America Awards. To be invited to join the CFDA is an honor, but to be chosen as a nominee and then win is a major feat. That’s why we’d like to send huge congratulations to Reed Krakoff for winning Accessory Designer of the Year at last night’s ceremony.
Despite Reed Krakoff‘s long tenure in the accessories industry, his eponymous brand is still a relative newcomer to the handbag game. The Coach president knows exactly what he’s doing, though; it took no time at all for Krakoff’s bags, which are mostly priced very well, to find their way onto the arms of high-ranking fashion folks and celebrities alike.
If you’re a regular reader, you know how we feel about Reed Krakoff around here – we’re fans, to say the least. Not only are the bags the perfect mixture of trends and traditionalism, but the line’s price point makes many of Krakoff’s options accessible where a similar bag from an equivalent brand might cost hundreds more.
Remember how last week, I posted pictures of the Reed Krakoff Atlantique and whined about how badly I wanted one to carry for Fashion Week? Well, never mind that post. Disregard it! Pretend it didn’t happen! I still want one of the bags, of course, but my object of desire has changed a bit.
