Kelly Rutherford talks about her new handbag collection
Kelly Rutherford, or better known as Lily Rhodes van der Woodsen Bass Humphrey on American TV series Gossip Girl, has recently released a five-piece handbag line under her own name.
Calling the bags her “little affordable luxuries”, Rutherford says her purses are “very affordable and something you could wear every day, which is what I thought was missing.” True enough, with retail prices ranging from $130 to $199, the collection of stylish day bags and chic evening clutches are very attainable but not cheap-looking at all.
The first-time designer took to the lady-like styles of Golden Age celebrities, including Catherine Deneuve and Brigitte Bardot and Grace Kelly, for inspiration on the collection’s designs.
These purses are definitely something Lily Bass would wear, and as Rutherford said, Lily would own one in each colour. Check out the video below, featuring Kelly Rutherford talking about her new line.
