WWD just announced that Splendid will be entering the handbag market in Spring 2014! After 10 years making contemporary (and, if we may note, super comfy and flattering) clothing, the company is now expanding to arm candy, via a distribution deal with Signal Brands. The paper also reports that the line is “inspired by the beach,” featuring neutral colors with splashes of cobalt blue and red. Expect perforated leather, “washed down” canvases, and woven fabrics via totes, hobos, satchels, cross-body bags and clutches. The price point is very reasonable; bags will retail for $148 to $378.
