Rafe Gives You More Bag for Your Buck With Nine West
If Rafe Totengco's first Nine West collection looks more luxe than you’d expect, it should come as no surprise. It’s design. Totengco, who was recently appointed creative director of handbags at Nine West, shared his inspiration for the collection. “”I wanted to make everything look good,” said Rafe at the line's preview yesterday. Mission accomplished. Totengco turned out an elegant collection that included plush fur-trimmed totes and vintage-inspired frame bags, each of which clock in at $99 or less. Fashionista: Who do you think the Nine West woman is? Rafe: A lot of people buy the shoes, but now if we can get her to buy the bag.
