I don’t know about you, but I don’t usually associate Cole Haan and evening bags. Ok, I don’t mean evening bags in the sense of a fancy schmantzy clutch, but more like I don’t even think about grabbing a Cole Haan bag for a night out on the town. For the most part, I think of Cole Haan for go-to bags. You know the kind; staple pieces, day to day bags, oldies but goodies. Like I said, you know the kind.

But of course, no sooner did I begin making that general statement, did I come across a Cole Haan bag that would actually be a lovely option for a night out. With the Spring and Summer months upon us, I am totally in the skirts and dresses mode: light, airy and super feminine. That being said, this bag would be perfect for so many warm-month occasions.


The Cole Haan Amalfi Zip Leather Shoulder Bag possesses everything I’ve come to expect from the brand plus just a bit extra. At this point, I don’t even feel like I need to comment on how exquisite the leather is, but I’ll say it again – gorgeous. Notice the texture involved with this bag. Texture must be one of the themes. The leather rouching, chain-link and leather strap as well as tassel pull takes texture to the next level. For some of you it might be too much, but frankly, I like it. All in all, a fabulous bag which is just another example that Cole Haan bags are here to stay. Buy through Saks for $208.60.

    At that price, it’s a steal. I definitely don’t think it is too much texture at all (fb)

    I absolutley love this bag, first bag I have wanted in a long time and can actually afford. With this economy its nice to see that companies arent charging outrageous prices.
    Also, just have to say that I am loving this blue. (fb)

    The only thing I like about this bag is the color. The leather rouching reminds me of my mother’s large clutches from the 70s, as does the awful shoulder strap. Excellent price but those main features don’t work on a clutch size for me. (fb)
