ONLINE GUEST: Socialite turned vegan cookbook author and handbag designer Cornelia Guest unveiled e-commerce on her Web site, corneliaguest.com, Monday. The current spring collection retails from $130 to $350 and includes two new styles: the Lucky convertible clutch and the Roxy envelope clutch. All product in the cruelty-free line, available at Bloomingdale’s, Tootsies, C. Orrico and Intermix, is comprised of PU, straw and linen.
“People are truly inspired by the cruelty-free lifestyle. I’m hoping that giving the public an opportunity to purchase my lifestyle bags directly through my e-commerce site will make for a more dynamic experience for people interested in the Cornelia Guest brand,” Guest, who received Fashion Group International’s Rising Star Award for accessories last month, told WWD.
