Katie Holmes newest title is handbag designer of Valextra for Holmes & Yang

Meet Katie Holmes Valextra for Holmes & Yang collection handbag designer

We already know Katie Holmes the actress (we’ll always remember her as Joey Potter on Dawson’s Creek), wife to Tom Cruise, mother to Suri and even fashion designer (she’s one half of the brand Holmes & Yang). And now she’s adding handbag designer to her list of accomplishments.

WWD reports that Katie, along with partner Jeanne Yang, collaborated with Valextra (a fave bag brand of Katie’s; her bestie Victoria Beckham is a fan too), to create two handbags for the Valextra for Holmes & Yang collection. They celebrated the launch at Barneys New York, where the bags will be sold exclusively starting in July. The bags (pictured on Katie) are classic square-shaped shoulder/tote bags with double handles and a large front flap. They come in two colorways: white/navy blue or white/shiny black calfskin. The bags will retail for $3,950.

Katie said about Valextra: “Their quality is exceptional. There’s such integrity in their work — they’re artists.” Valextra CEO Emanuele Carminati Molina said: “This was our first collaboration [and it’s been] really incredible. We decided to follow the desires of Katie [Holmes] and Jeanne [Yang], who wanted to have their own bag realized by Valextra. Because they love our products…and we wanted to see, and understand which style they were wearing. We understood that the style is simple but very chic, clean lines, sophisticated, with a lot of attention to the details. I knew that it was good for Valextra to try, and to mix our style with their style.”

These bags are classic and chic and embody Katie’s style. Will you be buying Valextra for Holmes & Yang?
