When either the names of Tom Ford or Carine Roitfeld pass over our desks we find it very difficult to refrain from broadcasting our admiration. So when the two collaborate on anything we simply can’t find a reason not to tell you about it. The “Carine” bag is the latest effort between the two to make a grab for your attention and more importantly the highly covetable space in your curated wardrobe.
The bag is available from colette, and we’ll leave the description up to them:
Fashion icon of the last ten years and ex editor of the French Vogue, Carine Roitfeld once again collaborates with the famous Texan designer Tom Ford. They launched for fall-winter 2011-2012 the “Carine” bag. It’s signature hardware is the “shackle” closure, reference to the porno-chic that Tom Ford is the initiator and the hand-stitched leather covered chain. It’s a semi-structured shoulder bag with an internal zip pocket and is offered in a variety of materials, all of them specially developed for Tom Ford, such as shiny alligator, python, goat skin, nappa leather, patent, or suede. The “Carine” is a style that will be continued within the Tom Ford accessories collection and will be reinterpreted and adapted according to the mood of the season
