LAS VEGAS, Aug 28 (Reuters) – Premium denim company True Religion Apparel Inc is launching a line of handbags for spring 2008, a new product category for the company, which is expanding beyond jeans as it rolls out its retail stores.
The company, known for its horseshoe logo on the back pockets of its pricey jeans, aims to create a lifestyle brand that moves it beyond denim. Its other recently launched lines include belts and swimwear, and a fragrance is expected next year.
The handbags, set to hit high-end boutiques and department stores in February or March, are made in Italy and feature details such as nickel hardware and the thick stitching used in its jeans.
Some bags use stamped python leather, others are fringed or colorful woven fabric. True Religion even offers a slouchy bag in denim with white leather detailing. Prices will range from $598 to $998, but leather key chains and pouches will be priced at $98 and $128, respectively…”
Loving the tan handbag – the leather looks really nice and the “speedy” satchel style of the bag is classic and never goes out of style. The blue one – eh – not the best we’ve ever seen…
