I've been watching the Reed Krakoff line since launch, especially the Atlantique style. I think the larger one would make an outstanding work/laptop tote, but my work laptop is so heavy that I need to carry it in a backpack. My DH really likes the Boxer style (he has great taste), but there's a bit too much going on there for me. The smaller Atlantique, however, is more of a day bag. Outside of work, I don't have to carry a ton of stuff, so smaller styles like the Balenciaga Town work perfectly for me. I was in NYC on vacation last week, and this lovely colorway absolutely jumped off the Saks shelf at me. I thought about it for a day or two, then had to go back and get it. What I love about this bag is the attention to detail. The top zip, the gunmetal hardware, the matching baby clutch that slips into the outside pocket, the tabbed pockets at either end, the luggage tag and strap keeper, the inside pockets, the long crossbody strap, the juicy pink/brown color combination with a hint of red...it's all perfect. The leather is soft and silky but substantial, and smells heavenly! I don't think this shape will ever go out of style. The only disappointment is that the prices on this style are already going up. I was hoping Reed Krakoff would be the exception to designer price-creep, but unfortunately not. A year ago the mini Atlantique was under $900, now it's over $1100. I loved this bag enough to pay a bit more, but if RK gets ridiculous (like Chanel and Celine), this may be my first and last.
