They’ve become the go-to blog for bags, and now they’re translating those sensibilities into their own handbag line. On May 15, the duo behind the Web site Bag Snob — Tina Craig and Kelly Cook — will launch a bag line on HSN.
The collection, called Snob Essentials, follows the duo signing Beanstalk Group as their licensing agent last year. The agency later sealed a deal with Artisan House to produce the entire line for two years, which will be sold exclusively in the U.S. to HSN for the spring 2014 season; it will expand distribution to other retailers for fall. HSN has already ordered 6,000 bags for the American market. The European e-commerce site Luisa Via Roma has ordered 700 pieces in all styles. The collection will range in retail price from $68 for a smaller bag to $108 for a tote.

"It's really hard sometimes. I think I have a reputation for being really tough and aggressive and pushy but I really am a very shy person who wants to be liked, and that's the conflict constantly. There's something that takes hold - I want people to like me, I don't want to be mean - but if I see something that just cries out to be answered, I go for it," says renowned NBC News correspondent Andrea Mitchell.
