Cole Haan Jade Satchel | Capetown Nubuck Leopard Print Bag

Posted on: Aug 19

Cole Haan Jade Capetown SatchelA classic satchel shape in a black color doesn't sound too exciting, does it? But Cole Haan shows us the potential in these traditional elements with this Jade satchel.

The Jade has been a staple of the Cole Haan line for years. But it's never turned my head, until now. The secret is that Capetown treatment, an intriguing black on black leopard print which covers the satchel's soft nubuck finish. Nubuck is strangely underutilized in the handbag world, and I'm thrilled to see it here. It's got that alluring luxury of suede, but it's much more durable.

Not that Cole Haan's leaving anything to chance. The flat platform base is made from patent leather rather than this softer skin, and equipped with metal feet to prevent scratches.

The moody leopard print makes this Jade feel exotic, but underneath the surface it really is a classic satchel. Its main compartment is mid-sized and well organized with an array of pockets for everyday use. The rolled straps are a little shorter than I'd like, but with a much longer cross-body strap also on hand I don't feel ripped off.

This Capetown Jade satchel makes an impression much larger than its small $348 price tag would suggest. Has it made its mark on you?
