Umm yes. He does have a runway shoe right? Well okay. There's your answer. Plus celebs elbow each other to get a front seat @ his show and he does beautiful things w/leather when he creates bags. My avatar is a KCole bag.
High end -ehh not when it comes to bags. But nonetheless he holds it down in his own right. I mean the man has been in the game for a long time. And who says her friend can afford "couture"? Just bcuzz it aint a Louis doesnt make it not a designer bag.
you all probably know this already but not every item in the Kenneth Cole store are designed by him. In fact, a large percentage of his men wear are directly from Liz Clairborne. The ones he does design have the black Kenneth Cole tag that looks like hand written.
With that said, I do love and own many Kenneth Cole bags. I always feel like since he started the business with shoes, he really knows the leather and really uses good quality materials for his hand bag line.
One thing that I hate about Kenneth Cole bags is turnover speed from the stores to Loehmann's or TJMax. You can buy the bag one day in full price and in one month it'll be in the discount stores.
