For those of you whom are unaware of this relatively unknown designer, Reed Krakoff has designed for a multitude of American brands for over 20 years. He also serves as the Vice President of the Council of Fashion Designers of America, which has awarded him Accessories Designer of the Year twice, for his work with Coach. My favorite piece from Krakoff's debut fall handbag collection is the Boxer II bag, mostly due to the belted detail. I love the gorgeous blue hue of the leather option, but I'm obsessed with the cognac hand-burnished alligator and grey felt version. Fabric bags made a major comeback this spring, thanks in large part to the tweed Mulberry Alexa, and I just can't get enough, especially when they're juxtaposed with an exotic skin. According to WWD Accessories, this variation retails for $6,900, while the leather adaptation is much more affordable at $1,490. My only concern is the fact that the overall design may be a bit too masculine for some women. Shop Krakoff's handbag collection at Net-a-Porter.com.
