A new designer has made their way into the world of handbags! Introducing Von Holzhausen! The handbag line was launched in Spring 2012 by mastermind Vicki von Holzhausen. Does her name sound familiar? It might not, but she is actually a famous designer from another realm. Fascinated with design since her childhood, von Holzhausen chose a career in advanced automotive design. She worked for Mercedes Benz, Audi, and General Motors and she is credited for the interior design of the Pontiac Solstice Convertible and the Saturn Sky Roadster. So if you own one of those, you are already familiar with her work!
After seeing her creations on the road, von Holzhausen decided to mix things up a bit and apply her creative concepts to handbags instead. So she returned to her native Los Angeles to embark on her new journey. The result is some of the most beautiful handbags I have ever seen! “The collection is all about seeing luxury in a new way”, says von Holzhausen. Looking at these pieces, I would say that is definitely true! And if you look closely, you will see a hint of her past in her designs.
Below are a couple of my favorites so far!
