Anyone that reads this blog with any regularity (instead of, you know, just looking at the pretty pretty pictures) knows of my deep and abiding love for the color grey. It’s the perfect neutral – modern, sophisticated, versatile, and with a small bit of inherent edge. It can go with black, brown, navy and any number of other colors that may be omnipresent in your wardrobe. Shades of grey don’t clash with each other. It’s absolutely sublime.
And it’s even better when it’s combined with soft leather and a subtly slouchy shape, as it is in the Cole Haan Prudence Small Satchel. I’ve been a fan of this shape ever since Cole Haan introduced it last season, and it’s even better with the thick pieces of matte woven leather. These handbags are light as a feather but still made of thick, durable materials and the color and texture are perfect for cold weather (some of which I wish I was experiencing right now. I’m sure I’m not the only one). Buy through Bloomingdale’s for $495.
