Yes, this is the "Reed Krakoff Boxer l bag" featured in the ad campaigns running in all the magazine this spring. I cannot believe I now own one, after clipping the ad out of magazines numerous times. Wow!
I love how the BOXER bag is not trendy, it is a timeless bag that can run through all seasons. It has a utilitarian feel but still feels sexy with the different brown and black tones and strap. Krakoff's inspiration behind the wraparound strap was the way boxers wrap their wrists before a fight. This is a brilliant way of adding a rough feel to a great feminine bag. I love it soo much and I hope I will have more Reed Krakoff pieces to add to my collection in the future. Maybe a matching wallet to go with my bag? *hint* hint* LOL! Here is a bit about Krakoff-
Reed Krakoff may sound familiar to you, he is the President and Creative Director of Coach but now creator of a self-titled brand that he started from scratch as well. His self-named brand, Reed Krakoff was launched last fall. Coach's core business is handbags and now that Krakoff has mastered accessories, he is successfully dipping into Women's Ready-to- Wear. His brand features clothing, bags, shoes, sunglasses and watches. He has minimalist instincts with a natural feel, which I love about many American Designers. And an eye for design with hidden details that are mainly visible to a professionals eye only. His use of exotic materials and designs, can't help you think you're looking at a piece of art. Like the "Asymmetrical Boar Hair Sandal" or the simple, "Sheer Wrap Panel Dress" sitting delicately on a female model. Reed Krakoff, true artist.
