It’s probably an understatement to say that the ubiquitous Jenner sisters are on a roll, but the youngest members of the Kardashian-Jenner clan are staking more of a claim in the fashion landscape with the addition of handbags to their contemporary label Kendall + Kylie.
Set for a fall debut at major luxury retailers and specialty shops worldwide, including Bloomingdale’s, Holt Renfrew, Neiman Marcus and Saks Fifth Avenue, the collection comprises 18 styles priced from $75 to $450 retail.
The overall aesthetic is both clean and sophisticated, and definitely aspirational, both for younger fans emulating the sisters’ look, and for the bags themselves, which take cues from some of the Jenners’ favorite luxury labels. The styles — two of which are purse charms — represent both Kendall’s feminine tomboy look, and Kylie’s streetwear edge. There’s a sleek pebble leather backpack, a clean satchel, a mini bucket bag and an oversized clutch. The sisters’ inspiration came from some of their favorite travel destinations, including Big Sur, Tokyo and London.
“Bags are definitely a must-have accessory; they can take your outfit to a whole new level,” said Kendall. “Our handbag collection is super modern and pairs really well with pieces from our ready-to-wear and shoe collection for fall.”
The materials and hardware, such as the crocodile-embossed leather on the Minato top handle bag or the top grain premium pony hair on the day-to-evening Bobino clutch, add a sense of luxury to each design.
“I love that we played with all different sizes, from mini to large. A good handbag is functional and easy to use, without compromising the design or overall look,” said Kylie. “Each design definitely makes its own statement.”
