cole haan bagI think I have a mild prejudice against Cole Haan handbags. For the middle price range, I like to go with lesser known designers that can’t be so easily found at your local department store. Still, if I saw you toting this Cole Haan Village ruched satchel, I would ogle and demand to know where you obtained it. I’ve said it before, but I love pretty much anything with pleats, and this bag has got cute girly pleating down to a tee. There’s just enough that it looks playful and interesting without evoking an aging pug. The shape of the bag is very feminine overall, and the pleating works with the whole look. The little ovular buckles and white stitching down the middle add even more details to fawn over. Add then the Hermes fan’s favorite orange, a really fun hue for summer, and you have one irresistible, vibrant, and ladylike bag. And of course even if you don’t go to Cole Haan for innovations in design, you can count on them for quality craftsmanship and materials, and I’m sure this bag is a steal for $395 through Neiman Marcus. It also comes in a lovely beige with darker stitching. Buy yours now and tote it with pride!

    Hello everyone,

    I do know that Cole Haan makes some beautiful bags and other products but after doing a lot of research I found out that they have used companies that use child labour and and other cases of slave labour have been brought to my attention. They are owned by Nike and there product with the exception of the made in Italy product is all made by factory workers that mass produce and treated not so great. So I ask you to rethink your purchases with this company before you support them. Cheers

    Does anyone know where I can find/buy the Cole Haan Village ruched satchel showen above (in a color BESIDES orange). I spotted one in while traveling in Hong Kong (it was pink) and should have bought it!! I’m regretting that so much — b/c now I can’t find it anywhere!! I don’t like the newer “village satchel” nearly as much! : (
