Hand(bag) it Over!

November 15, 2011

Well ‘ello there, Proenza Schouler pre-Spring 2012 handbags!

It’s no news that I’ve got a serious bit of a bag obsession, so I’ve got no shame saying that I’d love to add these two beauties to my collection! Who needs Vitamin C when they’re carrying a neon/citrus PS11 bag! And I may hate snakes more than anything in the world but I sure wouldn’t mind walking around with this PS1 canvas/snakeskin  tote.

Drool Pool.

We all know how much I love bags, so naturally my ears perked up when I found out that my old friend Victoria Horning was designing her very own line of handbags. Little did I know that her collection would quickly become my obsession du jour!

I met up with Victoria last week at Abdingdon Sq. Park in the West Village to catch-up and take a gander at her designs that I’d been lusting after on the internet for months and months. To say that I drooled over her collection would be an understatement. I was practically slobbering (not literal slobber FYI) over these bags, blown away by their unique shapes, impeccable construction, and beautiful quality. Each piece in her growing collection is named after one of her favorite streets in Paris, the source of inspiration for her line, and feature exotic skins and leathers that she finds in local NYC factories in the garment district. I loved hearing about how she goes about designing and producing these bags and the plans she has on developing her line further, eventually moving into shoe design as well.

While still in the beginning stages of making a name for herself in the fashion industry, I can say with the greatest amount of confidence that Victoria Horning is the next big thing. Her collection is the perfect combination of sophisticated simplicity and downtown edge and is as seasonless as it is timeless. You can currently buy her bags at NYC’s Curve Boutique in the West Village or by special order on her website. And be sure to follow her on twitter as well!

Now onto deciding which one I’m going to buy!
