Emily Ratajkowski, who has also been announced as the brand’s new autumn/winter 2017 muse, has teamed up with The Kooples to launch a handbag collection.
Aplty named Emily, the carryall is a boxy leather piece with an adjustable strap and gold hardware. The design is available in 38 different variations, including colourways of red, black, and taupe, as well as three different sizes. The small version will retail for Dhs1,375, whilst the large version will cost Dhs1,800. The brand describes the collection as "a combination of savoir-faire and The Kooples' rock and roll spirit. A dual identity: strong and feminine."
To announce the collaboration, Alexandre, Laurent and Raphaël Elicha, founders of the French fashion label, hosted an event at Hotel de Crillon in Paris. Model and muse Emily was of course in attendance, wearing a custom corseted dress designed by the ateliers of the brand. She finished her look with the bag she designed and ankle-strap heels.
The Kooples first ever Bag Collection Emily by The Kooples, will be available in stores from September 1.
