Alice + Olivia Introduces A Range Of Handbags You'll Carry All Year 'Round

September 12, 2012 by Lauren Caruso

Alice + Olivia’s Stacey Bendet may have crafted her spring 2013 collection with a 1950s picnic-going ingenue in mind, what with all the polka-dotted pedal pushers and ultra-feminine fit-and-flare frocks, but all we couldn’t help but turn our attention to something a bit more subtly chic: the accessories. For the first time in her brand’s 10-year history, Bendet is expanding her brand to include handbags, introducing three styles for day and two clutches for evening. Rejoice!

“I like doing things one step at a time,” Bendet told WWD, explaining that she wanted to perfect her craft before debuting a new category. “I’m a part of all of it. If we’re too scattered, I can’t give my full attention.”

As expected, each style encompasses Alice + Olivia’s signature retro-girly aesthetic. The three handbag styles, named the Olivia, See and D, will come in five different colors and reptilian skins (like snake and lizard!) and start at $495, while the clutches, which look to be available in a multicolored floral, a flame orange-red, and a sequined emerald green (this time, as a pillbox style), will start at $220 — not bad for off-the-runway accessories! You can expect these to be in stores in early 2013, but we’ll give you a heads up as soon as they arrive.
