Richard Koret was a renown designer and visionary during his time. His passion for handbags led to innovations of unique and functional hardware, handles, and shapes. He soon became known for his dramatic handbags and impeccable taste.
Koret traveled in many social circles that enabled him to do a lot of personal promotion. It allowed him to develop and maintain relationships with several celebrities that were devoted customers, such as Grace Kelly, Nancy Kissinger, Madeline Albright, and Claudette Colbert He also made several handbags for Jacqueline Kennedy while she in the White House. Cary Grant and Kirk Douglas wooed the women in their lives by purchasing handbags designed by Koret.
His handbags exuded femininity and elegance with traditional styling, exquisite details, and attention to quality and design.
On November 14th, 1965, Richard Koret, age 64, along with 7 others were tragically killed in a plane crash while flying from Palm Spings to Burbank, California. Malcolm Kingsberg, a life time friend, acquired the business until 1968 when Michael Gordon purchased the company. It was Michael who signed the license agreement in 1995 for Pierre Cardin. In 2009, Chateau International acquired the business. Today, the business remains to Richard Koret's philosophy and bring you a touch of the past with a modern twist in the form of two collections, Koret and Koret Luxe.
Not only the Let It Shine North/South Tote is gorgeously green, but it has a roomy interior that easily holds all of my essentials and more. It has two generously sized inside pockets and a back wall zip compartment, making it easier to find your top priority essentials. It also has an 18″ detachable shoulder strap, flexible round handle with faux tortoise inset, a luggage tag adorned with the Koret logo, detachable round mirror, and a push lock tab closure. The perforated green patent exterior and leopard print interior is wildly sophisticated with a hint of sassiness without the cattiness.
The tote is regularly $108, but you can get it on sale for $64. It's available in Grass Green, Melon, and White. The tote that I received, the Grass Green, is perfect for the upcoming fall season since jewel tone accessories are one of the top trends. Bold and saturated colors, such as emerald and sapphire, are perfect for complementing your outfits. It gives them a pop of color, making you stand out without causing you to blend in with the ho-hum fall colors.
