Kooba Mischa, Handbag of the Day
The Kooba Mischa is a casual, everyday use handbag. It is made of pale canvas and trimmed with contrasting, fawn-colored leather. The leather is tied off at the ends in small bows that give the bag a slightly youthful appearance. The long strap is adjustable up to a length of 37-in., so it can be slung over the shoulder or draped across the body. All of the hardware is an antiqued brass, which blends nicely with the overall color scheme of the bag. A magnetic closure secures the bag's contents, enfolded in the bag's suede interior. In addition to daily use, this would make a great bag for a student who just wants to tuck away a notebook or two, along with some pens, a wallet and a cell phone, when spending a day on campus. Price: $495.
