Rafe New York Carnegie Keira

If it weren’t for the reader’s, then I would never know what the rest of the world liked and wanted. I love feedback and I love to see what other people out there are in love with in the world of handbags. A brand I never really delved into much is Rafe, but a loyal reader of ours made sure to open my eyes to a new designer with some great bags. Chemlex, who is one of the biggest lovers of Rafe out there, has chosen the Rafe New York Carnegie Keira as her choice for the week. The bag is a duffle style shoulder bag made of a beautiful metallic leather. You can choose which color you love the most, whether it be olive, smoke, or copper. I really dig the size of the bag, the color, and the shape being a bit rectangular- it all strays a bit from the ordinary (official size is 10″ wide x 4 7/8″ deep x 6 1/2″ high). Don’t let anyone tell you that metallics are out of style- because everyone store is still filled with them on their shelves. My choice would be the copper or the olive- hey even the smoke is gorgeous. How bout you? There are four exterior zip pockets total: two front and two side. Using antique brass tone hardware only sets the bag off more with the beautiful shape and color. The site shows the bag being held by a mannequin which looks like it will fit snugly under the arm (7″ drop)- so depending on how you like your bag you could just carry it or put it under the arm. If you have been looking for the perfect metallic bag, Chemlexs’ choice may be the one for you. Buy it via Zappos for $ 353.95.
