Katherine Fleming Combines Classic Feminine Style with Ocean-Inspired Details for Spring Handbags

37 sec read

Katherine Fleming is a rising star in the world of accessories thanks to some celebrity fans and new faithful followers. This American designer, who was until recently Design Director of Accessories for Tory Burch, officially launched her own handbag line in the fall of 2008.

With celebrities like Naomi Watts and Agyness Deyn seen toting around her styles, I’m guessing that Katherine Fleming will only get bigger in the fashion world. Her classic and feminine designs aren’t particularly edgy, but they are unique takes on traditional bags.

The designer’s interesting use of colors, textures, and sheen is showcased in her spring collection, which was inspired by the ocean. This pictured pinkish-colored metallic material, called Goldfish Python, and matte python Ocean Batik are just two examples of the sea-like inspiration of the collection. There’s even an iridescent shoulder bag that calls to mind fish scales.

Fleming’s new collection will be available in the spring at Opening Ceremony, Barneys New York, and Liberty of London. Check out more from this up-and-coming designer on her official website.
