If you still haven’t picked out your favorite metallic shopper or over-sized tote for the season, there’s no better time to select your favorite companion than right before the holidays. Set aside the glitzy clutches and beaded miniaudieres for a moment, and take a look at the fresh collection from Kooba. Understated, yet chic, these over-sized totes are perfect for dressing up a weekend outfit at the shopping conquest du jour, or simply toting around at the post-work party. Kooba’s fall/winter collection this year brings us an assortment of ruched leather, python-embossed, and convertible bags, but it’s the metallic totes that are leading the way.
The Elisha Shoulder Tote (above, $575) adds a touch of girly-girl glamor to the mix with a giant bow attached to the oversized pewter compartment. It’s a great bag for some casual luxury, large and sturdy enough to carry all the day’s necessities.
A more vintage look is easy with the Kooba Kylie Metallic Tote ($675). This one offers a satchel-like construction with a dark pewter finish and antique brass hardware. It’s an easy pick for pairing with a sweaterdress or even skinny jeans and a turtleneck–simple and chic, this is a high quality bag that will last through next year.
And finally, if you’re still on the hunt for a miniature satchel to add at touch of shimmer to a basic black or grey outfit, the Kooba Mimi Small Satchel ($295) will fit the bill. This one’s available in both silver and bronze, finished off with brass or silver hardware and roomy enough to hold all the basics.
