The dude responsible for the depletion of both your bank account and Achilles’ heel has just released word that he's branching out in to handbags, too. Jeffrey Campbell
is synonymous with amazing heels that are a bit crazy yet not too expensive, and it looks like the tote side-project will follow this vein.
The lookbook is full of fringing, monotone, snakeskin and fun detailing. The result is very similar to the vibe seen with his shoes: a kind of banging trailer-park chic that'll have your lipstick smudged in no time. Best pick goes to the backpack style: an adorable two-toned friend that's big enough to store an emergency pair of JC heels in.
Campbell plans to change the direction and even brand name of his handbag lines with every season. This one is called Girls We Hated In High School
and is an ode to all you too-cool kids out there. Think Mean Girls, Clueless and every other chick flick in existence. Tote one at your next high school reunion and those bitches won't see you coming: it'll be kind of like Romy & Michelle's except you won't be wearing a matchy shiny alien dress (hopefully).
The one girl we wish we did go to school with, Luna Lovegood aka the wierd chick in Harry Potter, is also channelled in the collection. As far as we're concerned, anything that shouts out to Harry Potter is a win. They've even tracked down where you can buy yourself a pair of Luna's sunnies from
. Oh my Godfather, I don't mind if I do....
