What: Spring 2006 Kooba bags

Why: If you see a gorgeously mod bag with lots of antiqued brass studs, it’s probably a Kooba. Aged studs—and slouchiness—are the designer’s trademark. Besides the ever-popular Sienna Bag ($500; $645 embossed), there’s another hot design: the Ada ($725). Substantial in size, this tote is definitely in a class of its own. In studded, but not so basic black, it’s a take-me-anywhere bag. The Ada Woven Leather Tote is crafted from woven leather and has, of course, brass studs, which pop against the rustic brown color. Or you can take those signature antiqued studs out on the town with the Jamie Clutch (with Wrist Strap) ($285), a purse that can bring out your inner sexy-bad-girl qualities.

Kooba Fans: Rachel McAdams, Jennifer Lopez, Jamie Lynn Sigler, and tons of stars (like Kristen Bell) picked up Kooba bags during the great swag grab that is known as the Sundance Film Festival.
