After completing his degree at Parsons in the 80’s,
born designer Reed Krakoff has worked for iconic American sportswear lines such as Tommy Hilfiger and Polo/Ralph Lauren. It was in 1996 when Krakoff joined Coach and started to develop a partnership that ultimately would help mold his future ventures as a designer. Connecticut
Mini shoulder bag by Reed Krakoff: $525
In 2010, after practically rebuilding the Coach brand in the late 90’s, Reed Krakoff launched his namesake label. Although only a few seasons old, Krakoff’s strengths are clear. He refers to his designs as “warm minimalism.” If that doesn’t exactly provide an immediate image, Krakoff goes further to explain that the roots of his aesthetic lie closest with the ideas of minimalism, but with a downtown edge. Inspired by “New York style,” Krakoff can be associated most with a streamlined silhouette that is often accented with one of his covetable bags or pairs of shoes.

This season we’re excited for all aspects of Mr. Krakoff’s line. Like we mentioned earlier, his label is young when compared to many of his competitors, but with that said it has already developed signature accessories and pieces that we can’t wait to share with you. One of which is the Boxer bag. The simple and succinct design is timelessly stylish. Fortunately, Krakoff’s design goes beyond the stigma of an “It” bag. It has hints of a Hermes Birkin Bag structurally, but with Krakoff’s downtown spin. We’re also expecting shoes and pieces from Krakoff’s ready-to-wear line. Much like the Boxer bag, Krakoff is also known for his “baseball” tops. The style reappears through out Krakoff’s collection, whether in the form of a jersey, cardigan or sweater. We went with a nude cardigan that would be the perfect cover-up for your early spring wardrobe.
