Hanging with Mr. Cooper
Our blogger's love affair with his perfect Ralph Lauren carryall.
The author and his beloved Cooper bag waiting to catch another flight.
Years ago I was designing the windows for Ralph Lauren and they had a new product that changed my life--the Cooper bag. This ridiculously handsome bag has been one of the joys of my fickle existence, and I cannot recommend it more wholeheartedly. I have had mine for 10 years now, and it looks even better than the day I bought it. It's indestructible and the perfect size for any getaway. I have dragged it from taxi to taxi with my lap top and portfolio, gym clothes and tennis shoes all together around New York. I have stuffed it and smashed it into more overhead bins than one piece of luggage should endure. The more I abuse it the more character and lustworthy it becomes. Everyone should have one. It’s the Paul Newman of bags.
