Kooba Riley Bag
Origami frogs! Does anyone remember how to make one of those? When I was in grade school, we had a thing called the Frog Olympics. Students would make origami frogs to compete in a variety of contests. There was the Best Dressed Frog, the Largest Frog, and the Smallest Frog Competitions. There were also “Track and Field” events like the Long Jump and the High Jump. I don’t think I ever won any awards, but I do remember how fun it was to fold origami frogs. It is something that has stuck with me well into my adult life. So don’t be surprised if I’m making one while I’m bored at work or in class! The reason I bring all of this up is because of what I see when I look at the Kooba Riley Bag. In case you haven’t already figured it out, it’s origami! Think about it. The clean lines. The precise folds. How could you not be reminded? As far as whether or not I like this bag from a handbag perspective, I really can’t say for sure. I have always liked Kooba handbags, but this one seems so stiff-looking. Nothing like the typical squishy Kooba styles that I have come to know and love. I do like the pretty blue color though!
The Kooba Riley Bag is available in Teal or Luggage (Tan). It retails for $595.
