It’s in the Bag
When style bloggers and designers join forces, their collaboration is electric.
August 24, 2011
Tina Craig and Kelly Cook let the world know what’s in and what’s not on bagsnob.com, reporting the latest trends and profiling designers in the industry. From a Twitter conversation between @bagsnob and @dkny about what makes a good handbag, a friendship and partnership blossomed, culminating in a limited-edition collaboration between the bloggers and the designer.
Craig and Cook focused on designing for the “girl who knows what she wants and gets it done herself… and is prepared to go anywhere and do anything, all while looking fabulous.” The five styles of handbags in the mini collection—the Tote, the Travel, the Treasure, the Trendy and the Clutch—are designed to fulfill the needs of every DKNY woman. Thoughtful details such as metal feet, specially designed jacquard lining and exterior pockets for quick access on the go are enhanced with bold color and print combinations such as chino matte embossed croc and charcoal leather with a bright lipstickred handle.
