One of our Twitter friends is @katespadeny, who we love to follow for a glimpse into the life of Kate Spade New York. Today while Vlad and I were out for our Sunday brunch, I was checking Twitter and saw Kate Spade tweet a photo of a new bag. With one click I found my way to the Kate Spade Pocomo Gwen, a small cowhide bag with a camera embossed image, and I fell for the design and immediately went to the Kate Spade store to buy it.

The bag, named after a quiet beach in Nantucket, is small in size but great for short trips out when you only need the absolute necessities. I love the idea of going on a summer outing and having this little bag slung cross-body. Vlad always travels with his Leica and now, with my new Kate Spade Pocomo Gwen, we can match.

The shoulder strap has a long 23″ drop while the body of the bag is very small, 3.8″ x 5.9″ x 2″. I have been playing with the bag today and found that I can fit my iPhone, keys, lip gloss, cash and credit cards, and some tissues. This is definitely not the bag for every occasion, as it is one of the smallest bags I own, but during the summer I am always taking long walks and this bag will get the job done in a chic fashion. Buy via Kate Spade for $225.

    Me too! I saw this while browsing the kate spade site and immediately went to fashion valley to buy it! I LOVE love LOVE the design! I had no idea I even liked brown bags….

  • XXAL

    can it fit a dslr camera?? D:

    • Definitely not, it is a very small bag. Not even a rangefinder with lens will fit.

    I like the bag, but does Kate Spade still own the company. I thought that she sold it.
    I looked at the picture online, and that purse is teeny tiny, but very cute. I think that it’s funny that the bag has a camera embossed on it yet one won’t fit in it.

    I’m doing a handbag merchandising assignment for my merchandising class at FIT, and this is actually one of the bags that I chose to “sell” in my store! I saw it on the website, and fell in love. I think I have to get it for the days when I just have to go to work at Uniqlo, and only need my Metrocard, cash, iPod, phone, and keys.

    Oh my gosh, I love this bag! Reminds me of the SLR my dad gave me to play with as a kid. But it’s just too small for me, arg!

    The Kate Spade Pocomo Gwen is simply chic!

  • rose60610

    Unique for sure, but too cutesy for me.

  • Lucinda

    That is the cutest thing I’ve ever seen! And a bargain too, might be too tiny for every day though…

  • jbbee

    Can you fit an LX-5 in this bag along with a smart phone, wallet, and keys?

  • Mandy

    Love it. Kate Spade bags have made a big return to my consideration set. I have been very pleasantly surprised by their spring bags. This one is on my list!

  • Devon

    My sister designed this purse, I love hearing people say how much they love it–it really makes me proud of her!
