There’s a new line of handbags launching next week, and you can be first to get your pretty paws on them. Kelly White, an Austin girl with a background in graphic design and public relations, heads up Kelly Wynne Handbags, which began as a simple affection for accessories.
“You know those dreams people have growing up that seem really unobtainable, and are most likely just a dream?” White says. “This was mine.”
Not anymore. Becoming a handbag designer is now a full-blown reality with Kelly Wynne spring 2013, all crafted in the United States, already up for grabs. It’s a well-rounded collection of leather bags in a range of sizes, from clutch to tote, and colors that run from basic neutrals to seasonal shades of orange in a simulated stingray print.
“I wanted to start a fresh and contemporary handbag line with a mid-range price point inspired by the stingray look. I love stingray, but it can be very pricey. I started developing unique printed leathers that mimic exotics in a luxe and eye-catching way. There are two printed styles in my first collection, the Lizard which is comprised of repeating dots and the Serpentine which is a splattered look, both on printed suede.”
The spring collection is a small “exclusive” collection, and once the bags are sold out they’re gone, so if you’re interested in making a purchase, reach out now. The website is under construction until May 1, but you can see the collection up close and personal next week at the Kelly Wynne Dallas trunk show hosted by Haven in the cozy State and Allen neighborhood. Happening Tuesday, April 16 from 5:30 pm to 8:30 pm. Drinks, hors d’oeuvres, and valet included.
When: Tuesday, April 16 from 5:30 pm to 8:30 pm
