DOONEY & BOURKE EXPANDS COLLEGIATE COLLECTION OF HANDBAGS AND ACCESSORIES
Dooney & Bourke forayed into the world of sports with an MLB-themed collection of handbags and accessories. The company went on to introduce a Collegiate Collection last Fall, and the line has now expanded to include styles for 16 additional schools, for a total of 32 schools. Among the new universities added to the mix are: Baylor University, Georgia Tech, University of Kansas, Mississippi State University, North Carolina State University, Ohio State University, Texas Tech, University of Central Florida, University of Iowa, University of Louisville, University of Mississippi, University of Oklahoma, University of Oregon, University of Virginia, Virginia Tech, and West Virginia University.
School spirit takes on a fashionable twist, as each collegiate piece features school colors, while decorated with logos and mascots. The new line boasts seven classic handbags styles, from a hobo to a satchel to a shopper, as well as four matching accessory designs, with a small coin case, credit card billfold, and large slim phone case among the offerings. Pieces are lightweight yet durable, and made of coated canvas and trimmed with bridle leather.
