Look at this bag long enough and you’ll gradually start to fall for it. Adopting a totally different asethetic for his own eponymous line, Reed Krakoff (who is also Creative Director of Coach, by the way), shows that detailing need not always equate dazzling sequins or crazy monograms. All you need is a measured dose of sensibility.
In the same way, the Reed Krakoff Inside Out Leather Tote embodies all that and more. It is not particularly flashy, its two-toned leather body is almost (dare I say it) boring, but I think that’s exactly the point. Which is to let the design of it stand out more, or some might even say, stand alone. Measuring 39 cm by 24 cm, it is the perfect work bag for the ladies, especially those with stiff corporate attire guidelines.
Fully lined in grey twill, expect the usual patch pockets and zip compartments on the inside, an elegant and classic piece that promises to be relevant season after season. Retailing for GBP965 (around SGD1996 or so) at Net-A-Porter, its price is rather competitive too. In fact, it’s a good buy considering what other ho-hum designer bags are going for these days.
