Kyle Richards is following the lead of her reality TV sisters Carolina Manzo and Gretchen Rossi and creating her own handbag line. The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star plans to have her purses on shelves this spring.
With so many bags shrinking these days, it's interesting to note that Kyle Richards' bags will be oversized. They'll come in a range of colors and fabrics, although given their affordable prices we shouldn't expect anything too high class. Richards' favorite is a purple snake print doctor bag, which is likely to be every bit as ostentatious as it sounds.
Richards has been very hands-on with the design process, choosing everything from the fabrics and hardware to the colors. She aimed to create bags she'd feel proud to carry, and you can't do that unless you get your hands dirty!
The bags will be named after Richards' nearest and dearest: her daughters and her friends, including her fellow housewives. Apparently her co-stars have already spent some time flipping through her sample book, picking the purses they hope will share their names.
The Kyle Richards handbags will cost around $100, which is refreshing. I didn't expect this Beverly Hills housewife would create something so affordable. Perhaps she's not as out of touch as she seems on the Bravo show!
