After writing a recent blog post all about Kooba for The Bag Forum, I instantly became more intrigued about the brand. I’ve always known about Kooba, but I would say now I definitely know pretty much the whole story about how the brand came to be, and I’m also familiar with more of their purses now. I’m still in love with the “Malia” but the “Colby” is very intriguing.
When I was in high school, I thought I was one of the coolest teenagers because my Mom had bought me a Coach backpack. A majority of the high schoolers had Jansport backpacks but of course I had to strut around with a designer one. The “Colby” is definitely a bag I would of wanted to have in high school.
I think the coolest feature about this bag is that it’s convertible! When do you ever seen a backpack that can instantly be turned into a crossbody bag too? I’m not a huge fan of backpacks or crossbody bags but I do admit that this is pretty awesome! I have one crossbody bag and if it turned into a backpack it would be a pretty spiffy fashionable travel accessory to have.
You can purchase the Kooba “Colby” at Nordstrom for $525.
