I posted this in the Kooba forum but HAD to share here: SO! last nite we had friends over and i was LOVING my friend's black patent handbag (it seemed like there was a croc pattern on it too), when she tells me that its a KOOBA that her husband got for her FROM KOOBA in return for doing some work for then (he runs an engineering business and i think he helpsthem design their storesor something) - how freaking cool is that???? of course i jumped right in and asked for a red elisha and he said he would ask (this is after several bottles of wine of course) - the bag was very unstructured and had two tote handles and i believe gold hardware - it seemed like a drapey sienna but im really not sure...any thoughts??? he also told me that there would be a "janine" bag in their next production line named after his wife (my friend) - again, how cool is that???? also, Kooba is looking into opening up a store right here in Red bank, NJ (a tiffany's just opened and also Coco Pari is there) - yay!
