For those of you who have a purple crash BE bag, have any of you seen the Kooba bags in wine metallic? I saw two Kooba bags today in this color. To me, the color looks similar to the color of some of the purple crash bags that have been posted.

I loved the Kooba color, but was not crazy about the styles of the two bags I saw. If the color is similar, I would definitely consider a BE purple crash bag since the Kooba bags looked great with the jeans and white top that I was wearing.

Here's a link to one of the Kooba bags in metallic wine:

I'm hoping that someone has seen both colors and can tell if they are similar. I have a small swatch of purple crash, but I couldn't compare since I didn't have it with me.

Plum Crash looks as it will be slightly more metallic than the Kooba.

Really, your best bet would be to take the swatch and do a side, by side comparison.

Both are lovely colors.

Thanks, Contessa!

I'll start carrying the swatch with me. I just did a whirlwind tour of two malls and went through Bloomingdales, Saks, NM, and Nordstrom. All of them had Kooba and I don't remember which one had the wine metallic bags. By the time I get back to those malls, I bet those bags will be gone.

msterling - I haven't seen the Kooba in real life, but I just received my purple crash WTM midi and I know that if you like the color of that Kooba - you will love the Purple Crash. It is so gorgeous in real life - and I think it looks prettier and more sophisticated than the Kooba because of the crackled texture.
