Daryl K has added accessories to its contemporary fashion line for spring 2011.
The label is starting small, with just two bags and two ankle boots. The cutely named Jeanius is a large nappa leather tote, which sells for $695. The Shackleton is a more luxe option at $895. I'm not sure I see an additional $200 of value, but this cowhide leather messenger is still very stylish.
If shoes are your thing you can choose between the Chelsea Girl, for $525, or the Kerrigan Cowgirl, priced at $550. The Chelsea Girl is great for anyone who loves flats, while the Kerrigan Cowgirl has a bit more style with its small heel. The Kerrigan Cowgirl boots are also available in black, brown, and beige to help you easily incorporate them into your wardrobe.
Designer Daryl Kerrigan recently told Women's Wear Daily that she recognized the need for accessories "women would want to wear every day." With Daryl Kerrigan returning to the runway this season, the expansion into accessories seemed only natural.
I really like the marriage of practicality and polish in the Shackleton, but I'm not particularly excited by the rest of the Daryl K accessories. Still, there's certainly potential for some great shoes and purses to come out of Daryl K in the coming years.
