Target is teaming up with handbag bag designer Joy Gryson -- formerly of Marc Jacobs Handbag Division -- for a limited edition handbag collection. The collection will feature around 8-10 different styles, and prices will range from $19.99 to $49.99 for bags that look VERY similar to previous Marc Jacobs designs, but at a fraction of the cost. Gryson also has a devoted Hollywood following, with her bags gracing the fashionable arms of Jessica Biel and Michelle Williams.
According to the Target press release, “Gryson’s edgy collection combines luxury design and practical details, such as multiple straps and pockets. Gryson has become known for her mix of Italian leather in rich hues (burgundy, chocolate, khaki, black, white) and understated details like woven top handles, brass hardware and signature hanging ID tags.”
The Joy Gryson for Target collection will be available at Target from April 6 through June 21, 2008.
