Desperate Housewives costume designer Cate Adair has designed a limited edition Mariposa bag for online e-tailer Handbag Tailor.
Canadian designer Miss MAK Designs created just 100 of these black pebbled leather satchels from Cate Adair's sketches. Their exteriors are decorated with a smattering of steel rivets around the straps and dressed up with black anaconda pockets. Inside you'll find slip and zip pockets and racy cheetah patterned fabric lining. Each one is numbered to mark their limited edition status.
The Mariposa isn't as eye-catching as many limited edition lines, but that only makes it more timeless. Its sophisticated styling should transcend trends and seasons, so you should see plenty of value for your $470. That's not a lot to spend on a bag made with such high quality leather, especially one that's vamped up with a splash of snakeskin. And for a limited edition accessory made from these enviable materials, it's virtually unheard of!
The Mariposa is available exclusively from Handbag Tailor. It's set to be the first of many limited edition purses on the site, so it might be worth bookmarking this online store and checking back regularly.
Can you imagine Susan, Gabrielle, or any of the other housewives carrying the Mariposa down Wisteria Lane?
