Viktor & Rolf Join The It-Bag Circus

The women who inhabit the collections of Dutch design team of Viktor & Rolf have had a lot of fantastical getups to choose from over the past decade, but until Spring/Summer 2008 they haven't had a single handbag to call their own. In stores early next year is a capsule collection of purses in the understated couture style that has become the duo's signature. Designs are kept spare and neat, with details that incorporate V&R emblems like the logo seal, the bow, and the Flowerbomb diamond shape. And each style has a name derived from the idea that they might all have a conversation together (the black patent "How are you" bag and the pink satin "Good evening" clutch, for example)—when they're not serving as conversation pieces on their own.
