Vince is a brand of many contradictions—it blends sport and luxury leisure, carries modern designs that double as timeless classics, and encapsulates that effortless "undone done" aesthetic that all cool girls hope to achieve. Oh, and the brand was at the forefront of the athleisure movement before athleisure was even a thing (case in point: Vince's coveted leather joggers and perforated slip-ons). Suffice to say, Vince has been ahead of the cool-girl curve time and time again, conquering the apparel and footwear realms (and even the kids arena for mini fashionistas).
And now Vince has turned its attention to handbags with the launch of a 13-piece collection that embodies everything the line stands for. "In designing handbags, we focused on impeccable construction with lightweight, fine Italian leather, exclusive hardware and understated branding," says Karin Gregersen, Vince president and chief creative officer. "The collection truly leverages our brand DNA, providing effortless, cool and timelessly chic handbags that are the perfect match for our ready-to- wear and footwear collections."
The spring 2015 line-up, which ranges from $295 to $845, carries a bag in every size, color, and silhouette—luxe stamped croc clutches for evening, minimalist leather totes to hold daytime essentials, and adorable baby cross-body bags for the gal on the go. Some boast super-sleek graphic cut-outs on straps and handles, and others feature a unique (though unassuming) notched "V" detailing.
The collection lands in Vince stores and on vince.com starting Nov. 14, but—good news—everything is available for pre-order starting today.
