Ahhh...you`re so lucky and you deserve that Kooba
Maybe you have a pic of it? I`d love to see that beauty I`m thinking of getting Kooba Sienna myself

How long do people think the "Sienna" bag will be in style? I'm surprised that you saw so many in NYC roccos. What color(s) did you see the most?

I'm worried that this bag will be all played out by fall (if it isn't already).

what do you think????

I love your nutmeg tindi-rindi - the leather looks so soft. The ones I saw in NY - were mostly the nutmeg but alot of them had a very smooth leather look. Didn't really get a close look to see if they were fake. The ones for sale I saw at Barneys also looked smooth.

I'm thinking the earlier ones were made better - once Kooba saw it becoming a hit - they began to mass produce more of them - and perhaps the quality fell off a bit with that.

I love my Kooba Sienna because its so darn practical. My Chloe Paddington is too heavy and slips off the shoulder for an all day outing - my balenciaga first is too small to hold any extras - I find myself using this purse sort of as my "default" purse.

My only regret is paying $595. + tax for it when I might have been able to get it a bit discounted. But I've sure got my money's worth out of it.


As far as being played out - who cares? I was "bag watching" and the Kooba was one that was easily identifiable and recognizable. if that counts for anything.

^^Thanks for the info! I guess I was just worried that it will look too dated - too soon. Also i'm not sure if I look like a cowgirl when I wear it!

Can`t wait to get it

I know it`s not "IT" bag or even very original nowadays but it was the bag I wanted to get for a long time (and where I live, fashion comes very late, so it`ll be quite original :p )

I live in a city like that too! Actually the capitol of FL you'd THINK some would carry some nice bags but all I see are LV speedies (love those too) and the ocassional fake LV.

I've not yet seen a kooba AT ALL here so I'm pretty hip (I guess). I've seen one or two Bbags - classics NO chloes, NO fendi spy (ocassional fake one of the FFs) lots and lots of coach, dooney - etc.

I love the koobas.

People here just begin to buy expensive things And of course they begin from names you`ve mentioned So it`s so cool when somebody asks what kind of bag are you carrying and they see that it is good quality

CherryBomb01, I love that they`re so roomy too And not that heavy, like some others.:p

Is Kooba doing new collection? Anybody knows?
