This ube- and strawberry-jam-colored bag is by Kate Spade. Perfect for summer, it reminds me of sweetness and delight.
The Kate Spade Leroy Street Web Quinn tote – colorful and sturdy. The shape is simple and boxy, just the way I like it. The bag material is nylon.
Nylon webbing handles in scarlet and purple are accented with purple leather grips for comfort. The logo is simply screened on the fabric in silver. This style also comes in green and turquoise.
There is an actual Kate Spade, the co-founder of the label, which she launched in 1993 with designer Joel Franklin. Aside from handbags, the label has also put its distinctive style stamp on stationery, shoes, beauty products, perfumes, eyewear, and more.
The handles are securely fastened with discreet rivets. There are also four small feet underneath the bag.
The zippered top opens all the way for ease of use.

Detail of stitching, striped nylon lining fabric, zipper, and leather zipper pull. Hardware is light gold-plated.
There are four Kate Spade boutiques in the Philippines.
The bag is very roomy, with a zippered inner pocket on one side, and cellphone and PDA pockets on the other side. The lining is a custom-woven Sant Elmo stripe on faille.
Inner identity: once again, the logo embossed on the inner leather flap on the pocket.
The care card that comes with the bag has a sentence that is in itself a narrative.
Bag measurements are 9.54 x 11.5 x 4.5 inches. It holds all my stuff, including my Kindle 3 and Samsung Galaxy Tab, making it a winner in functionality.
