Did you notice anything different about the Elizabeth and James Autumn/Winter 2013 collection? Previously their models have always appeared empty-handed, but this year Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen’s contemporary label launches its first ever handbag collection. I got an early look at the handbag line, and can say without a doubt you are all going to love the designs! Elizabeth and James have covered all bases with this collection: there are shoppers, messengers, backpacks, hobos, cross-body styles, satchels (my personal favourites) and wallets. What more could you ask for?
Unfortunately I can’t show you the entire Elizabeth and James handbag collection just yet (although you can see most of the designs in the AW13 lookbook on style.com). But I am able to share close-up images of two styles. The sling bag is already proving to be the most popular design, and the leopard print shopper is an absolute must for anyone who carries 75% of their possessions around with them on a daily basis.
The Elizabeth and James handbag collection will hit stores later this year, and price points will range from around £250 to £500. I think that’s the most exciting news, if I’m honest, as it’s impossible to find a gorgeous designer bag for less than £1,000 these days! And if you can’t bear wait, distract yourself with the SS13 collection, now online at Shopbop.
