Designer We Love: Kooba

In the designer’s own words, “Kooba’s story is about women who search for ways to express their personal style.” Inspired by vintage finds, Kooba’s bags have everything that make a handbag a classic: rich textures, fresh shapes, and luxe details. Statement-making, without being too trendy, Kooba bags are the perfect blend of timeless and modern. Spotted on a wide variety of celebrities (Hilary Duff, Eva Longoria, Katherine Heigl, Rihanna, Brittany Snow, and Maria Menounos), Kooba bags are a testament that great style appeals to all ages and personalities.

2. Kooba Owen ($495)
is a tonal leather shoulder bag in a “naked” neutral finish. The color plays into the nude trend without getting too trendy…it’s sure to be a go-to for years to come.
