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.
Reed Krakoff Handbags and Purses(Page 2)
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.
I know that relatively inexpensive canvas totes probably sell well for you guys. They’re extremely low-margin compared to leather bags (which are already pretty low-margin compared to lots of consumer products), and having a strong brand name means you get to mark them up like crazy.
Although I’m something of a switch-hitter and can change back and forth between large and small day bags with relatively little thought (mostly because I work from home), it seems clear that most women either prefer something large and spacious or something smaller and easy to carry.
