Marchesa to launch its first handbag collection

Women’s Wear Daily reported today that Marchesa is launching its first accessories collection. The brand plans to debut its Spring handbags at its presentation on September 16, 2009 at the Chelsea Art Museum during New York Fashion Week. The collection includes 28 clutches and evening cases with details you’d find on Marchesa dresses: beading, pleating and corsetry.

“We had never done accessories,” said Marchesa’s Georgina Chapman. “So we thought, ‘Let’s approach it the way we approach a dress.'” But, she continued, “Some people don’t always have an occasion for a gown. You could wear these with jeans and a T-shirt.”

The collection includes box clutches draped with silk swaths to create the Marchesa signature rosette, a long black satin clutch with turban-like symmetric silk pleating, and an elongated oval silver clutch with beading and embroidery. In addition to the silk bags, there are also exotic skins such as alligator, crocodile and lizard in colors such as aubergine (THE color for fall) and ochre. All of the bags interiors are lined in grosgrain ribbon detail resembling a corset.

The bags are expected to retail from $995 all the way up to $5,000 for exotic skin purses.
