Rachel Zoe Carries Reed Krakoff: Power Couple

Not that we need any reminder, what with a killer line of her own and all, but there’s a reason Rachel Zoe is the top stylist for miles. Case in point: her brilliant choice of Reed Krakoff’s Boxer bag. Ultra-large in python, of course – going halfway is not Rachel’s thing!

She recently took the tote for a casual stroll with her husband and son in Beverly Hills. Paired with Rachel’s trademark deep-red manicure, loosely belled jeans, and oversized sunnies, this structured top-handle is a brilliant way to instantly take an outfit from zero to overdrive. And this isn’t the first time Rachel and Reed have made an awe-striking team, so to speak. She also sported the Boxer back at the Marchesa show in February, with a polished wool suit-and-fur mix (of her own design). It just goes to show how far a versatile investment bag can take you.

Take a cue from a woman who knows, and pick up a wise Krakoff purchase for yourself. The Atlantique tote, in a thrilling blend of python, cobra, and lizard, is a variation that packs the same “wow!” factor. Available on Net-a-Porter for $5,990.

    1. hi sam, thanks for catching that! even if i re-read a million times sometimes little errors get past me 🙂 xoxo Tina

  1. Love Reed krakoff’s designs, but most of the handbags are made in China and lack the quality to justify the price. While I know that there are some questionable practices concerning those manufacturers advertising that their bags are made in Italy, there are still reputable houses such as Hermes, Anya Hindmarch, Celine, Lanvin, Valextra, Mulberry, Chanel, Smythson, etc.., whose bags are truly constructed in England, Italy, and France.

  2. Freakin’ gorgeous. I prefer the Atlantique that you pointed out to the Boxer she’s carrying. Alas, I will have to wait until it goes on sale (which RK’s bags do – at great discounts!)
