Kooba does particularly well by producing bags that are useful, functional, and chic in the most simple of ways. They always experiment with the lines on their handbags, whether they’re diagonal or vertical, thin, thick, or fluted. This Kooba Millie Vertical Shopper is probably the best example of that- the lines of the bag take center stage.

Rather than relying on studs or heavy hardware to make a spring statement, this shopper goes back to what classically makes a spring bag: the color. The vibrant turquoise is all you need to know that this bag is made for the days of beach balls and ice cream trucks. (more…)

When I first laid eyes on this Kooba bag I thought to myself ‘perfect’. From the large drop on the shoulder strap, to the cross-bag belt, to the rich leather, the Kooba Ricky Hobo hits all the right marks in my book. (more…)

Sienna MillerYes, I’ve said it before, I love celebrity gossip. It really is a guilty pleasure of mine. I don’t know why, but as soon as I open a celeb infused magazine or type in a celeb heavy site, I am fixated. It’s not that I am trying to emulate one celebrity or another, but I love to see where they go, what they wear and who they are hanging out with. I can’t help it. And to be honest, I know many of you sitting there reading this feel the same way. Whether you openly admit it or feel some sort of shame admitting it, so many of us love celeb gossip! Today I came across some very interesting images of Sienna Miller. Many view her as a fashion icon or at least someone who keeps up, if not sets, trends. She could be in rainy London, sunny LA, or fast-paced NYC and she is always photographed and her clothes almost always commented on. Today is nothing different. A red cape? Really, Sienna? I realize she is in London, and it is probably frigid, but the Little-Red-Riding-Hood-look makes me go “hmmmm”. I can’t decide if it is fashionable or a fashion faux-pas. (more…)

Kooba RyderOh how this brand holds such a special place in my heart. A Kooba bag was one of my very first designer handbag after all. As we gear up for Valentine’s Day, Kooba’s founder, creative director, and recent interviewee, Abbe Held, sheds a little Valentine’s Day insight.

Go out or stay in on Valentine’s Day? I definitely prefer staying in… it’s one of my daughters’ favorite holidays. They will never give up the opportunity to eat sweets!

Which would you prefer on Valentine’s Day, chocolate or flowers? Neither! A Thai Massage is sounding really good to me now. But, if I had to pick one of these two options, it’s definitely dark chocolate. (more…)

Shannon brought you all a little insight behind Kooba a couple weeks ago with 5 questions for Abbe Held, Kooba’s creative director. Vlad and I spent time with Abbe Held in her NYC showroom last week getting to know more about her and the Kooba line. The fun-hearted mother of two spends her weekdays designing some of the hottest bags in the market and her weekends dancing in the kitchen with her two daughters and husband on pancake Sunday. Her bags are crafted beautifully with a practical feel and an edgy touch. We loved getting to know one of the leading women behind Kooba and hope you do as well.

As I’ve mentioned previously, possibly more than once (ok, so, maybe a lot more than once), I normally find brown bags completely objectionable. I don’t have a brown-friendly wardrobe, I don’t find it to be a particularly modern shade, and sometimes I feel like it’s a cop-out for people that don’t have the guts to buy a real color. I’m also a big proponent of brights as neutrals, and the bag I’ve carried every day for the past couple of weeks can be referred to as nothing less than VIOLET. In all caps. It’s that purple.

But today, I was inspired by Megs posting a beautiful Burberry bag that just so happened to be brown, and I decided to take a look around the Internet and see if I could find a bag to inspire me as well. I was dubious, and I anticipated writing a post about how there are absolutely NO good brown bags out there, but, as happens from time to time, I was wrong. (more…)

Kooba Ashley in Metallic Silver Python

Ever see a bag (or anything, I guess) and immediately think “Oh my God, that is GORGEOUS” and then, after you get yourself all excited and paw at it for a few seconds, realize, “Wait…something isn’t right.”

That’s what happened to me last weekend when I encountered the Kooba Ashley at Bloomingdales in Lenox Square Atlanta. I have a soft spot for Kooba since the Kooba Meredith in Slate from Fall/Winter ’07 is my favorite handbag of all time. I also think that pewter is the classiest metallic out there, and the Kooba Ashley’s most striking finish is a dark silver faux python. So, this bag should be practically made for me, right? Have the handbag gods been listening to all of my silent prayers? That’s what I thought, too. (more…)
