Matthew Williamson does color. He does bridal. And now he does leather handbags! He sure knows the way to a woman’s heart.
The British designer just debuted a line of leather handbags, as an extension of his existing evening bag category, Vogue reports. The line’s 5 handbag styles (shown in a very cool lookbook, above) are hand-crafted in Italy, and feature a range of materials – from grained leather, calf skin, woven jacquard and more. Williamson told Vogue:
I wanted to create a collection of leather handbags which would not only reflect the brand’s DNA, but also appeal to a busy cosmopolitan woman. Listening to my clients, I know how busy they are and how much goes on day-to-day – so it was really a reaction to this. I wanted to design a collection which would appeal to their lifestyle.
The collection, which matches perfectly with the designer’s fall 2013 show, specifically the rose tapestry fabrics featured, will be available in September. Prices range from $600-$2000.
