Recently, Saks Fifth Avenue noticed a hole in their luxury handbags selection and pinned Rebecca Minkoff to design a higher-end version of her line to fill the gap. Minkoff's new collection is exclusive to Saks Fifth Avenue, but it still has the Rebecca Minkoff aesthetic, with a touch more elegance, and an overall glam-bag vibe.
The collection boasts calfskin, lizard embossed leather, and rose-gold and gunmetal accents. Minkoff used premium materials for the collection, which has a higher price point than her contemporary collection. This capsule collection retails for $595 to $1,095, and the Beverly Hills location is the first to receive the bags. (Text and photos by Samantha Lefkowitz.)
