Bloggers Tina Craig and Kelly Cook have shared an obsession about handbags for a long time. Now the founders of Bagsnob.com have made their designing dreams come true and teamed up with global brand DKNY for their first bag collaboration. The fabulous collection won’t be available for purchase until October, but some lucky celebrities have already been seen trying out the new handbags. X-Factor UK judge Tulisa Contostavlos recently wore The Trendy, a chic charcoal and black cheetah printed haircalf cross body, at a red carpet event in London.
Craig said in a recent interview with WWD that the collection is an interpretation of their “Five Essentials”, or their must-have bags, including The Tote, The Travel, The Treasure, The Trendy and The Clutch. One of my favorites, The Trendy priced at $325, is the most versatile, as it can be worn three ways. The exclusive collection will be available at DKNY.com and Net-a-porter.com in October.
