Kate Spade New York president and creative director Deborah Lloyd has joined forces with Follis NYC designer and 2010 Independent Handbag Designer Award winner Catherine Meyer for a chic limited edition handbag.
The beautiful black purse is made from buttery soft cowhide and embellished with Follis' famous laced accents. While those wide corset-style sides are pure Follis, the handbag also stays true to Kate Spade New York's signature sophistication.
Meyer said she was inspired while working with the Kate Spade New York design team, adding that "It's fun to create a product that will reach a completely different customer."
I'm not sure this tote will really "reach a completely different customer" than the one Meyer already enjoys, as the bag isn't that dramatically different to the ones she already produces. However there's something to be said for walking a well-worn path when it already blends such sophistication and fashion-forward style.
This Kate Spade & Follis bag will be available from selected Kate Spade stores, including all London boutiques, the outlets at Atlanta's Lenox Square, Dallas' Northpark, the Galleria in Houston, Las Vegas' Fashion Show, Los Angeles' Century City, Broome &5th in New York City, Newport Beach's Fashion Island, and Kate Spade's website. It will be available through the holiday season, or while stocks last.
