Tina Craig, the bagaholic behind Bag Snob, has collaborated with Net-a-Porter and Gianfranco Lotti to launch Tina Craig for Gianfraco Lotti. The nine-piece capsule collection offers handbags and coordinating bag straps that reflect the partnership of the two renowned tastemakers with distinctly different perspectives on the world of luxury leather goods. Gotta love leather. The collection will feature plenty of color as well, a Craig signature.

The collection includes three styles of bags in an assortment of bold colors accompanied by mix-and-match bagstraps  Styles include a gate pattern, Florentine locks and the impeccable craftsmanship of Lotti’s Italian heritage. Craig pays homage to her native Southern California by employing a range of sunny colors throughout the collection. A little fun in the sun, even though it's winter.


These bags can also connect with your friends through fashion by sharing and swapping.


Billie Faricy-Hyett, senior buyer of Net-a-Porter said, “We are delighted to exclusively launch the Tina Craig x Gianfranco Lotti bag collection. I have always been a huge fan of Tina’s and have followed Bag Snob avidly for years so for me it was a dream come true to be able to partner with her on this collection. The design coupled with the beautiful story behind each piece will really resonate with our customers who are always looking for product that is new, unique and beautifully made. Tina is an expert in accessories and Net-a-Porter is the global expert in fashion, so it was only natural that we would come together for this incredible launch.”

Craig, founder of Bag Snob said, “This is an joyful collection for me. I spent most of my youth in Southern California after immigrating to the United States at almost nine years old. I discovered Schwinn beach cruisers, board shorts, video games and Astro Pops. This collection is inspired by those happy childhood memories centered on endless days and carefree pleasures. Whether you grew up in SoCal, New York City or in an European city, the reminder of the sun setting at the end of a exuberant day (in my case, sunset meant it was time to go home after a daily adventure on my beach cruiser) will make everyone smile.”
