Accessory Designer of the Year
Though Reed Krakoff launched his eponymous line just two years ago, he's been the president of the Coach brand since 1999. Prior to his role at Coach, Krakoff held longtime executive positions at Tommy Hilfiger and Ralph Lauren. Needless to say, Krakoff is not at all new to the accessories realm, though he's only recently become a bold-faced participant. His brand rose to widespread popularity this year with the Boxer Bag, a unique satchel that promptly found itself on the most-wanted list of fashionistas everywhere.
