Designer Bags from A to Z
Posts Tagged ‘Satchel Bag’

First, I just wanted to say that this bag is amazing. I love the details, the texture and color combination, and even the lack of hardware.  Combining three different materials (leather, canvas and python) really makes this bag stand out.  Moreover, the intricate design shows that the designer really put a lot of thought and creativity into this bag.  This one is definitely not just another standard looking boxy satchel.

This structured bag has somewhat of a preppy look. Even so, the color combination and the non existent hardware add to the bag softer appeal.  In my opinion, the color combination is just perfect for the spring and the python front pocket adds substantial elegance to the bag.  Just so you know, this bag doesn’t only look good from the front. It also look like a piece of art from the side.

Kooba Harlow

Kooba Harlow

When I saw this bag, I just had to have it. I know that I already have a handful of brown bags but the bagaholic inside me doesn’t care about that.  Usually, when I try to justify a bag purchase I would tell myself that the bag is functional and I can visualize myself using it everyday (does that sound familiar to you?) One day when I was chatting with my friend, Linda.  She told me that her sister (an uber bagaholic) also uses the same reasoning before buying a bag. Now, I’m wondering, do we really need a reason to buy a bag?

I like how the straps are connected to the bag, I also like the hardware detail.  Not too much hardware but still enough to get the bag noticed. Kooba Harlow comes in three colors, black, “luggage” (shown) and “grapefruit”.  In my opinion, the “luggage” color is the best of all.   It measures  9″ Hx 17″W x 5″ D- 8″ Drop.  Retails for $595.00
