SheFinds News: Name That Handbag

June 18, 2006 by shefindsrebecca

Ralph Lauren named The Ricky after his wife.

Ever wonder what it takes to get a designer handbag named after you? Fashion Week Daily did a little investigating and found that designers often name a bag after friends, relatives or celebrities who seem to embody the bag’s characteristics. For example, Kooba’s Sienna Bag – that great bag with the brass studs and braided tassels – is named for the queen of boho-chic, Sienna Miller. Said Kooba’s head designer: “you put sketches on the board, you have to come out with a name, and slowly you start to feel it; it’s like you get to know the bag, like a friendship. With the Sienna bag, we realized we had something that was so bohemian and so trendy, it was almost inevitable.” (source: FWD)


Marc Jacobs uses girly names for his bags: Mia, Elise, Jane, Guinevere, and Daria. That sounds like the group my Grandma plays bridge with. We do know that Marc’s 2005 handbag hit, the Selma tote, was named after actress Selma Blair. Monica Botkier's Sloane bag is named for her one-year-old daughter. Botkier says the bag is simple, clean, and has a slight edge – all traits she hopes her daughter eventually has. “Making a bag is like forging a friendship,” Botkier said. I think I understand. Buying a $600 leather bag is a commitment for any girl – that bag should carry us through thick and thin, just like a best friend.
