Target has done it again and nabbed the Brazilian-born American designer Carlos Falchi to be the next designer for it's affordable handbag collaboration. This announcement comes on the heels of recent collabs by Felix Rey, Hayden-Harnett, Anya Hindmarch, Devi Kroell and Botkier to name a few.
Falchi has been designing bags for over 3 decades and has won the prestigious Coty Award for accesories design in 1983 as well as been nomnimated twice for CFDA's Accessory Designer of the Year Award. Falchi’s signature look of vivid color combinations and unusual patterns and textures is achieved by unique leather treatments and a passionate involvement with the distinctive design of each skin.
Falchi’s designs will hit Target's nationwide and target.com on October 11th, 2009. WWD reports "the 13-item line will consist of faux snakeskin handbags in jewel tones such as plum and teal with contrasting shades of brown, black and gray. Some handbags will utilize collage or patchwork techniques."
