Katrantzou's A to Z tote bags have a unique design
for each initial.
fashion designer Mary Katrantzou was well-received when
she visited Los Angeles recently for several events,
beginning with the launch of her A to Z totes, which are
being sold exclusively on MatchesFashion.com.
and Matches hosted a stylish crowd at the Kayne Griffin
Corcoran gallery for cocktails and a light supper to
celebrate the collection, which includes bags ($1,070)
for every letter of the alphabet, each surrounded by the
designerís signature prints.
those who came to sip punch and snap photos of the
colorful totes were actresses Kiernan Shipka, Gillian
Jacobs, Michelle Monaghan and Liberty Ross; handbag
designer Clare Vivier; home accessories designer Heather
Taylor; and shoe designers Erica Pelosini and Louis
did a resort collection with prints based on letters of
the alphabet," Katrantzou said of the totes, adding
that only 20 of each was made. "Itís nice to have
something that feels exclusive. But if youíre any
letter but X, Y or Z, you better move fast."
