Sometimes — when it comes to creating a piece that feels both fashion-forward and practical — it takes someone who just gets it. In all reality, no one comes across nearly everything in the industry quite like a highly sought-after model — which would explain why The Kooples has partnered up with Barbara Palvin as its latest muse to help design some of the new pieces. The Victoria's Secret model and half of one of the chicest couples in Hollywood is bringing her experience to the design realm. And now, Palvin’s co-creation — the Barbara by The Kooples bag — is officially launching. Prepare yourselves because this bag will be a staple in anyone’s closet.
Without a doubt, the Barbara by The Kooples bag will be an instant classic in your wardrobe. Inspired by vintage cases used to carry cosmetics, this structured bag will be perfect for all of your outfits, no matter the occasion. Palvin wanted to create an easy-to-use handbag that can also make a statement, and from the looks of it she succeeded.
Available in a mid-size option for casual, everyday affairs as well as a mini version for happy hour and beyond, the Barbara bag — which ranges from $425 to $550 — will be available in The Kooples’ brick-and-mortar retail locations as well as its online store on Oct. 15.
While the Barbara bag features a timeless silhouette, it also includes modern hardware that touches on the cool edge The Kooples is known for. Plus, it’s available in a variety of colorways and prints that will go with anything.
If you’re looking for a new bag to finish off your outfits this season — no matter how you define your style — there’s a version of the Barbara bag for you. For anyone who needs an option for every occasion, the classic black leather iteration is just what you need. And if you want to add a pop of color to your ensembles, such as a simple T-shirt and jeans look, opt for the style in red leather.
Anyone who simply can’t get enough of the animal print trend will obsess over this bag in its croc print. Available in red, navy, and black, the croc print Barbara bag will be a cool alternative to your everyday option. And if you happen to be looking for a cool faux-leather option, the Barbara by The Kooples bag also comes in a python print that goes with just about everything you own.
