When Reed Krakoff launched his eponymous line in Spring 2010, I was delighted to soak up his personal aesthetic. Having been a fan of his work at Coach, where Krakoff still serves a Creative Director, it was wonderful to get 100% RK without the burden of an iconic brand between him and his consumer. While, his collection encompasses accessories and ready-to-wear, I’m particularly drawn to his handbags, more specifically the Boxer (even more specific for the current season, the Art Boxer). Crafted in a dizzying combination of materials, the sophisticated satchel is certain to become a staple silhouette for the brand. The juxtaposed of canvas, snake, and matte and shiny leather works and draws you in for another look, like a dazzling kaleidoscope. At $1,390 the price might make you dizzy too, but I strongly feel this is worth the investment. The Art Boxer bag by Reed Krakoff will endure over time. Just make sure to protect the canvas – keep it off the ground with the help of a Clipa, stuff it with a Pursendipity ring when not in use, and place in a dust bag.
