Junior Drake is a brand that we’ve only touched on twice in the past on PurseBlog Savvy, but from what I’ve been seeing lately, that may have been a big oversight on our part. I’m a big fan of brands that use the texture of leather that they appear to prefer (it looks similar to what Kooba uses on their softer purses).
One of the best examples I’ve seen of the great leather that they use is the Junior Drake Kora Tote. The color of this one in particular is somewhere in No Man’s Land between dark purple and navy blue, but it’s beautiful and versatile enough to be worn in any season. Combined with the not-too-showy tassels and braided details, the bag is young, fun, and certainly a great option for a very reasonable price. I look forward to see more from this brand in the future if this is any indication of the kinds of things they make. Buy through Bluefly for $299.
