New York—What with her sumptuous furs, exotics and animal prints and lavish details, designer Adrienne Landau has a longstanding reputation as being among the truly luxe accessories brands.
Renowned for her wraps, vests and coats, Landau has branched out in recent years into scarves, eyewear, leggings, umbrellas, gloves and home furnishings. Now her distinctive high-end style is coming to handbags and small leathergoods, thanks to a new license with Buxton.
Planned for introduction during May New York Market week, the Adrienne Landau handbag collection will bear the designer’s signature touches, such as bold and colorful fur (real and faux), bejeweled details and hardware.
“We had been looking for a license that would be distinctive and much different from what we are in our Buxton brands,” said Eric Lund, Buxton’s chief executive. “Adrienne also brings her background as a painter, providing a fine artist’s touch to her designs. She truly brings a whole new sensibility to handbags and accessories.”
Aimed at better department and specialty stores, the Adrienne Landau handbag collection will range at retail from about $200 to $400 with small leathergoods retailing from about $50 to $150.
