Obsession Of The Day: Reed Krakoff Python Gym Top Handle Bag

Having spotted this lovely little bag in person, I’m having a moment of obsession with it. Now, I know that this python bag might anger quite a few animal rights activists, so I promise to highlight something vegan friendly shortly, something of equal quality. But right this second, I have to take a moment to love on this bag because after handling it in person, it’s nothing short of spectacular. Designer Reed Krakoff has created a GORGEOUS roomy tote that has a cross body strap as well as short top handles that can easily ride on the crook of the arm as they can in the hand. I’d be careful of the temptation to carry your entire life in this bag, even though it does look like it could hold it. The thought with a bag this fabulous is “strut”, not “schlep.” Then again, it’s actually created as a chic alternative to the “gym bag,” so it’s not inconceivable that you would place your equipment in there along with your daily essentials and hop from Pilates or exercising to that all-important meeting without anyone being the wiser. I know I personally would have to upgrade my entire workout wardrobe to look like it deserved to be placed in such a bag. At any rate, whether you carry it to the gym or not, this python bag deserves to be seen on the scene, so feel free to be the envy of anyone in the locker room, board room or restaurant where you carry it. It’s to die for. Oh, and a lock. Yes, definitely bring an extra lock to store this bag. You wouldn’t want your frenemy in your yoga class to get any ideas.
