If there's one thing cobras aren't known for, it's subtlety. That flared hood - and the dramatic impact when it pops the hood out - are unmistakable.

Now you can bring that same impact to your own look with this stunning Sharif tote bag. The exceptional painted cobra embossed leather is an irresistible attention-grabber, masterfully framed by colored pebble grained leather.

The interior won't disappoint, either, giving you pleasing soft purple lining and enough organization to keep your schedule from striking you unawares. So leave subtlety to the field mice - you want to be noticed.
