    Default Karl Lagerfeld Handbags

    Consider the newly launched Karl Lagerfeld line of handbags and luggage an homage to the master himself. There are silver cravat-esque zippers dangling from shoulder bags, clearly perceptible Ks woven into leather clutches, even tote handles cut out in the shape of the designer's sunglasses. Designed and manufactured in collaboration with the Accessory Network Group, the holiday/resort collection features a mostly black, white and beige palette with occasional pops of color (hazard-cone orange, midnight blue). The company has high hopes for its retail appeal, too. This week, buyers from Lane Crawford, Holt Renfrew and Bergdorf Goodman are slated to preview the pieces, which will make their debut in stores in October. "We wanted to create details that are very identifiable with the designer," said Abe Chehebar, chairman and chief executive officer of ANG. "Karl has seen [the collection], and loves it." Wholesale prices range from $250 for a handwoven nappa leather clutch to $1,510 for a shearling carryall with metal and leather cable handles. "We're very selective about the brands we take on," added Chehebar, who in March signed a three-year licensing deal to produce handbags and leather goods with Vera Wang's Lavender Label as part of the company's Prestige Brands Division. "There's so much potential with the Lagerfeld line because Karl himself is endlessly inspiring."

    update:
    Karl Lagerfeld's long anticipated new purse line is coming soon -- launching in spring 2009.

    The collection consists of 42 designs. The press release says the line is "inspired by the designer’s passion for modern architecture and photography, and especially by his spirited lifestyle and iconic personality." Expect to see these available in high-end department stores for $595 to $3,000 when spring rolls around.

    I'd carry the silver one:

    soley because my 's name begins with K and I'm cheesy like that. I'd not pay $500 or more for it, and I don't like ..any of them, though.
