It's not uncommon to spy the ikat print at this time of year. The vivid use of multiple colors, bold patterns, and clever designs makes it exceptional - unique, fresh, and bold, yet somehow wearable even if you tend to shy away from vibrant looks. If you favor the look but prefer it in small doses, consider an ikat bag.

Label lovers, rejoice: Coach puts its signature stamp on the print with the Kristin Ikat Op Art Signature Convertible Shoulder Hobo
