My #1 tote obsession for Fall 2012 is none other than Reed Krakoff‘s lovely Atlantique. Reed has won me over in a major way with this bag, so much so that I am putting the Atlantique up there on the level of the Céline Luggage bag. Yeah, I said it: CÉLINE. You can all gasp now.
I absolutely love that both the design and the details are as spectacular as they are thanks to useful pockets: two on the sides for cell phones or baby bottles, plus large front and back patch pockets for your Kindle or iPad. A removable pouch in contrasting or tonal color adds a trendy color-block element when you want it – or simply hide it when you don’t. There is also a removable body strap. I haven’t even started on the interior. It offers so many bells and whistles, you almost need an accompanying manual to learn all the functions of this amazing bag!
From bright green to creamy eggshell and beige to rich red to python-paneled natural, it’s the starkly chic white-on-black that is my favorite color combo of the season. Reed Krakoff, I pronounce thee bag perfection. On Net-a-Porter for $1,490-$2,890.
