    Arrow Jonathan Adler Launches Handbags

    If you're crazy about home decor and interior design as much as me, then you're probably quite familiar with the name Jonathan Adler! Known for his decor but soon, handbags? That's right, Jonathan Adler is expanding and adding women’s handbags and accessories this spring 2012. This will be Adler's second try at the handbags biz..

    In April his designs will be available online at ShopBop and Neiman Marcus and instore at Jonathan Adler boutiques.


    WWD reports:

    For spring, the assortment includes canvas tote bags with rope handles that retail for $250, tote bags in coated canvas or jute with leather trim that retail for $178 to $198 and zippered jute clutches for $38.

    The fall line adds a more substantial handbag style in chainstitch wool/cotton with leather handles and side pockets that retails for $495. Lively motifs adorn the collection throughout, such as snakes, pinwheels and geometric patterns. Smaller pouches and cardholders fashioned from PVC are decorated with icons like scooters and sailboats or words such as “Lust,” “Peace” and “Sparkle” in vintage fonts.

    This launch is the second time Adler has tried his hand at bags. A short-lived license in the category was yanked a number of years ago.

    “The first time I took a crack at it, I felt the bags were beautiful, but they were a bit too formal and too pricy,” said Adler, who is producing these new bags in-house. “My customer is a little bit more bohemian and eccentric.”

    I'm a fan of his decor pieces but I don't think I would consider carrying one of these bags. Maybe a really small accessory, like a pouch.

    I think they are cute, but I would want to see them in person. I suppose he was due to have a handbag collection though since he's had small accessories for awhile now.

    Yea, and it sounds like he's taking a completely different direction than the last go at it.. going for the more casual look.

    Excited to see the rest of the line when it comes out!

    I didn't know he already had a small accessory line out. Where is it sold at! Can't wait to see the bags when they're available!

    They sell the accessories at ShopBop.com, although the selection seems limited at the moment. There used to be umbrellas, cell phone cases, and stuff. Now I just see the keychains and photobooks.

    I'm very happy to see that Jonathan Adler is now doing accessories. I'm curious if that's going to be it for him, or is there more to come?
