Pre-Spring 2015 handbags include three distinctive collections. The Vince Signature Collection, rendered in smooth, structured leather for a clean silhouette, features a unique “Signature V” detail on styles including the Medium and Large Totes, Medium and Baby Crossbodies and Medium Clutch. Select styles in stamped croc offer a luxe, textured alternative. The Modern V Collection is constructed in soft, slouchy pebbled leather, and includes a Large Satchel and Medium Crossbody with convertible straps for ultimate functionality. Finally, the distinctive Cut-Out Collection boasts statement-making silhouettes in graphic black and off-white. Cut-outs scale the sides of the Medium Tote and punctuate crossbody straps and easy-hold clutch handles, for a creative take on color-blocking.
