ChicagoRefinery29, a popular destination for fashion experts and fashion enthusiasts has teamed up with DKNY on a line of handbags that will surely come in handy during the Spring and Summer seasons.

Refinery29 x DKNY Collection is inspired by the readers and editors of each of Refinery 29’s markets it currently services and there newest and first international edition, London, that is set to launch December 2012. The bags include: Washington, DC – The Crossbody; New York City – The Backpack; Chicago – The Tote; Miami – The Mini Crossbody; Los Angeles – The Box Clutch; San Francisco – The Satchel; and London – The Chain Strap Clutch.

Refinery29’s Creative Director, Piera Gelardi, told WWD of the collaboration: “We thought about each market and how we see it responding. We are a trend destination, but the bags aren’t overly trendy. They are still classic.”

After launching its e-commerce platform in the summer of 2012, Refinery29 has expanded its offerings, allowing its readers to shop directly from the website. This has allowed many fashion lovers to enjoy directly purchasing any Refinery29 suggestions without leaving the comfort of their homes and avoid the hassle of hopping from store to store.
The bags will go on sale this March on,, and in DKNY stores. Prices will range from the $195 for the Los Angeles clutch to $395 for the New York backpack. We’ve been on the hunt for cute, modern backpack to tote our new CANON and FUJIFILM cameras in!
