Well that was quick! We told you just last night about the newly announced capsule bag line that Current/Elliott founders Emily Current and Meritt Elliott would be doing for Kate Spade, and now we have images of all seven bags for you to peruse. As expected, the designs of Westward by Emily and Meritt for Kate Spade New York marry the competing East Coast and West Coast aesthetic of the two brands, and hopefully this time, no one will get shot.

We’ve got one last interesting morsel of handbags news for you lovely ladies today, this time by way of a counterintuitive collaboration that threatens to be fabulous. Women’s Wear Daily reports that Emily Current and Meritt Elliott, the duo behind West Coast denim brand Current/Elliott, have joined forces with girly New York’s Kate Spade to bring us a capsule collection of bags.
The collaboration, which has been given the mouth-full name of The Westward by Emily and Meritt for Kate Spade New York, will feature bags ranging from $245 to $1295 that marry Current/Elliott’s West Coast cool with Kate Spade’s colorful East Coast femininity. For a larger image of the first bag from the collection to hit the Internet, you know where to click. We’ll bring you more pictures and availability info as soon as we have it. (more…)
