AUDI’S TOTE: Audi has teamed up with Michelle Vale, the New York-made handbag brand, on an exclusive tote, available for purchase beginning Aug. 26. The tote, which is made of Italian leather, includes four pockets and interior compartments for iPads and comes in silver or black with taupe handles. Retailing for $395, the bags will be sold on Audi’s Web site, audicollectionusa.com, and in its catalogue, as well as in select dealerships.
“Audi places a premium on attention to detail when it comes to its performance vehicles, and we found a kindred spirit in Michelle Vale and the quality she designs into her products,” said Loren Angelo, director of marketing for Audi of America.
