>> Tiffany Launches Handbag Line by Lambertson Truex Designers —Women are more likely to splurge on a bag for themselves than a piece of jewelry, so in response, Tiffany is launching an extensive line of handbags, ranging from $395 for a small suede tote to $17,500 for a large crocodile bag, in a dozen of its US stores Sept. 1 (the collection is already online here). The designers of the bags are Richard Lambertson and John Truex, who designed under the Lambertson Truex label for a decade until the recession drove them to bankruptcy court in Spring 2009; Tiffany subsequently bought the trademark and hired the designers. Each bag carries some element of Tiffany's signature blue, whether it be on the clasp, the color of the lining, or the entire bag. [WSJ]
