The Beloved Ingenue of Luxury Handbags: Khirma Eliazov
The greatest fashion editors go beyond reporting on the latest trends and actually take the initiative to set trends of their very own. Think about Anna Wintour’s chic bob and oversize sunglasses or André Leon Talley’s outlandish outfits (which have included capes with abstract prints, turbans, and coats with embellished lapels, among other madness). Khirma Eliazov, a former accessories market editor at Vogue, Teen Vogue and Harper’s Bazaar, understands this concept perfectly. Rather than just inspire other budding fashionistas with her personal style, she is gifting us with a line of inimitable luxury handbags that stand out from the fray with their whimsical silhouettes, Park-Avenue-goes-Art-Deco designs, and trademark stingray patterns.
Handbag styles ranging from the Mignonne Pouch (pictured above) to the Rojika Saddlebag were an instant success at the Khirma Eliazov pre-trunk show at Henri Bendel during New York Fashion Week and at the Coterie Sole Commerce expo. After such a dazzling debut, Khirma Eliazov has sashayed into such high-end stores as Henri Bendel (where the bags will be available starting Nov. 15th), Milk in West Hollywood, Curve in NYC and LA, Diavolina in LA. Prices range from $150 for a small wallet to $1500 for a large handbag.
