It would be putting it mildly to say that Victoria Beckham is a bag enthusiast. She reportedly owns around 100 Birkin bags. So it’s little wonder that the designer decided to create her own handbag line, and that her bags seem inspired by the classic shape and timelessness of the Birkin.
Victoria Beckham is one of the few celebrities to design a successful line that has been well received by fashion critics and celebrities and the general public. She took her time and worked with the right people to create a smart line with a clear aesthetic. So it follows that her handbag line is a hit, too. Beckham paired up with former Luella and current Marc by Marc Jacobs accessories design consultant Katie Hillier (who now designs her own adorable bunny-filled line) to create a collection of understated, boxy, lady like bags with a severe edge.
Two of the styles–the leather and nubuck shoulder bag and the hexagonal chain bag in crocodile–went on sale yesterday at Net-a-Porter. The leather and nubuck sold out within the hour, Elle UK is reporting. The nearly $14,000 crocodile bag (pictured right) sold out by the afternoon.
According to T, the collection comprises of six styles ranging in price from $1,800 to $13.950. The theme for the collection? “24 hours in the life of Victoria.”
So unless you truly live a life like Victoria’s, and didn’t spring for the $13,950 crocodile purse yesterday, the full collection will be available later this month at Bergdorf’s, Neiman’s LA, and more on Net-a-Porter.
