Press Release

Gilt.com, an innovative online shopping experience, and famed women’s shoe designer Brian Atwood announced a partnership to launch Atwood’s first-ever handbag collection on March 28, 2012. Gilt.com is the exclusive retail destination to purchase Brian Atwood’s handbag collection for the complete first season.

“Shoes and handbags are extremely important, they can make or break the outfit. I always design for a certain woman who is very confident, sophisticated, loves fashion and isn’t afraid to laugh at herself every now and then,” said Atwood regarding the collection. “What I love about Gilt is that it has a sophisticated customer and it brings an energy and excitement to online shopping. Gilt couldn’t be a better partner.”

Gilt.com will feature four main styles from the collection - the Carla, Theodora, Kate and Iside. The Carla is a basic envelope clutch that comes in an array of materials and colors from cobalt blue suede to color blocked snakeskin perfect for Spring. The Theodora and Iside are both a miniaudiere hardcase constructed from inlayed enamel that feels great in the hand. Rounding out the collection is the Kate, made of leopard print pony hair, it is also a clutch with a zipper closure and front snap pocket. The collection was created to be able to take a woman from the most glamorous event to a dinner at a small sidewalk cafe. Styles range between $1,050 and $1,850.
