I can not express the joy, excitement and gratitude I feel right now. Joyful that a celebrity would choose to carry a bag we designed, excited to see the press recognize it, and immeasurable gratitude to the DKNY team for believing in us. My friends, I give you– the Trendy bag from the Bag Snob x DKNY 5 Essentials collection as seen on Tulisa Contostavlos of The X-Factor! Made of genuine ponyhair in gray leopard and leather, the Trendy is the most versatile bag in the collection. It may be worn as a clutch, a belt bag, shoulder bag, and cross body (we like options!) Retail $325, will be available after October 15th at DKNY boutiques worldwide, select department stores in the US and exclusively online at NET-A-PORTER.COM.

I teared up when I saw this. I imagine this is how a mother feels to see her baby graduate from college?! I remember when I sketched this bag last November– I had my friends Jane and Judy Aldridge of Sea of Shoes and Atlantis Home in mind, something a fashionable young girl and her chic mother would carry. We love leopard but decided to do it in gray (who knew Alaia would choose gray leopard as his print this season!) and we wanted options. There is a pale gold chain link shoulder strap as well as a leather strap that converts the bag into a belt-bag or cross-body bag (4-in-1 bag!). I can not wait for the collection to hit the stores in mid-October!
