Coco Rocha is adding “handbag designer” to her résumé. The supermodel has teamed with Botkier New York on a capsule collection of bags due out in November for holiday. “I’ve wanted to create my own handbags for a long time, but I didn’t just want to lend my name to something and have no input,” Rocha said. Added Monica Botkier, designer and founder of the brand: “I’d done a few collaborations in the past, but this was different. Coco is a fashion person…and she came prepared. Her vision is strong and directional — it’s like Botkier amplified.” The eight styles, retailing from $268 to $448, were inspired by four of Rocha’s favorite cities: New York, London, Paris and Milan.
