Kooba goes wild with this python printed Kiley satchel.
I usually love snake scales, but frankly I think they confuse what could have been a very elegant purse. I find myself trying to look past the mottled skin to take in the Kiley’s unique structured shape, and the chic envelope pocket with its stylish silver clasp. In a matte leather we’d have been able to appreciate these details better, and the effect wouldn’t have been so overwhelming.
I can’t fault the design though, which is just as functional as I hope for in a day bag. It’s enormous, but with its assortment of leather trimmed pockets it doesn’t feel too overwhelming. And remember, there’s always that pocket in the front for the items you need on hand. The handles are a shade shorter than I’d like, but petite girls should be able to sling them over their shoulder.
I’m sure many girls who lust after snakeskin but can’t quite afford the genuine article will appreciate the Kiley’s $595 price tag. Personally though, I can’t help wishing that Kooba had pared things back a bit here.
