Having now owned several designer bags (including my Balenciaga beauties), I've come to think that Cole Haan bags are some of the best bags for the money on the market. For example, a few weeks ago I picked up this baby Cole Haan : Women's HOBO : Paige Collection Handbags at 40% off (last season's model, hardware on handle is slightly different than picture). It's a stunning bag, the color is deep and the leather sumptuous. Then today found this gem: Cole Haan : Women's ZIP SATCHEL : Paige Collection Handbags which is a perfect black work bag, big enough to hold files or a laptop, and fits over the shoulder. (The bag I purchased has one difference from the picture - the ring on the outside pocket is hardware instead of leather, which gives it a little more punch.) The quality and workmanship are excellent, and the styles are simple and classic enough that I know I'll use these bags for years. Any other Cole Haan fans out there? What are your favorite CH bags?
