Victoria Beckham Shows Handbags at New York Fashion Week | First Look at Former Spice Girl’s Accessories Line

44 sec read

Victoria Beckham unveiled her first collection of handbags as part of New York Fashion Week. The former Spice Girl launched her spring/summer 2011 line at a Manhattan townhouse yesterday.

The centerpiece of the range of the signature Victoria bag, a structured dual handled tote which bears more than a passing resemblance to a Hermes Birkin. Unlike the coveted It bag though, the Victoria is set to retail for just £1200. It will be available in two sizes, and buffalo and crocodile colors.

The good looking, if not altogether inspired, handbag is the result of Beckham’s work with Marc Jacob’s designer Katie Hillier. Victoria told the media that she was thankful for Hillier’s creative knowhow during the development process.

I knew what I wanted, but I needed someone with the expertise, who knew about factories,” Victoria said.

The  collection also features a travel tote designed with Victoria’s jet-setting football star husband David Beckham in mind.

I had to put a bag in the collection that David would use,” she added.

I’m not seeing a lot to really inspire me from Victoria Beckham’s collection, but I do admire her commitment to affordable luxury. Are you looking forward to seeing the entire line?
