When it comes to style icons, it’s hard to ignore the impact of Nicole Richie. This celebrity kid turned reality star turned designer has turned out rock solid designs with her two lines, House of Harlow 1960 and Winter Kate. Where HOH 1960 previously featured jewelry and shoes, Richie has now expanded her design expertise to a line of handbags debuting NOW for fall 2011 and I for one am one smitten kitten.
Maintaining Richie’s bohemian glam design esthetic, the bags are a mixture of perfect day bags and luxe evening clutches that look like vintage finds for which you might consider going into hand-to-hand combat. We’re talking nubuck leather crossbody bags with beautiful details, a gorgeous black leather tote for a day bag with rock and roll streed cred, and a good amount of clutches in leather and velvet.
Ladies, you know how you can’t find a great bag that will leave you stylishly hands free if you have to run errands or manage the kids? How about that fabulous evening bag for the forthcoming holiday party circuit? This line has you COVERED. I’d get my hands on these early and rock them often. This is a collection that will make sure you have your fall style in the bag.
