Tiffany Introduces ‘Holly’ Bags

July 22, 2010

In an effort to move beyond the coveted jewelry for which it is known, Tiffany debuted a new collection of hand bags last week.  This launch comes about two and a half years after the brand’s entry into eye wear, and thirty years after the New York-based company launched a failed collection of  bags and scarves.

The collection mostly features bags in the $395-$1000 range, with a few exceptions, including a $17,500 crocodile leather ‘Manhattan’ satchel.  How Hermes of them.

The $595 ‘Holly’ clutches – named after Audrey Hepburn’s Holly Golightly in Breakfast at Tiffany’s – are cute and somewhat gift-able, but I’m curious to see how many people will spend that kind of cash on a Tiffany clutch, when you can get a great bag for less at Kate Spade!  If you’re like me, you’re checking out the usual suspects (Vuitton, Prada, YSL) when considering a bag to invest that kind of money.

The collection will be sold in Tiffany’s 12 largest U.S. stores starting in September.  I may not buy a bag, but I may pay them a visit while viewing more sparkly things!
