Porsche Design Fetes 40th With Women’s Bag Line


porsche-handbagPorsche Design is feting its 40th anniversary with its first women’s handbag collection, which is set to hit stores in March. The line is made up of 20 variations of what it calls the Twin Bag, a bowler bag style silhouette with two adjustable handles that is available in different colors, materials and hardware options.

Retailing for between $1,600 and $24,500, the bag is available in ostrich leather, crocodile and calf leather sourced from France. The core price is less than $2,000. “In 2009, we launched a women’s collection and we thought about the possibilities for Porsche Design to enter this competitive handbag market,” Juergen Gessler, Porsche Design chief executive officer, said. “From our point of view, with this collection, we found the perfect combination of our iconic style with function.” –WWD
