Canadian luxury brand Ports 1961 is set to launch a bag collection.
The Toronto, Canada-based luxury brand will be unveiling its first bags for Fall 2014.
Ports 1961 creative director Fiona Cibani has designed a new range of bags set to be unveiled in Milan, Italy in February, which will hit stores in the fall.
The first standalone line of women’s handbags, featuring four styles, is called “No. 10 Bag”, a nod to the way the line was inspired by the brand’s classic white “Blouse No. 10”. Made in Italy, the bags will retail from RM2,640 to RM7,040, and there will also be a new version of the Blouse No. 10 available for RM2,640.
“We are recognised as a ready-to-wear brand, and until now we did accessories to complete the look,” Ports 1961 general manager Salem Cibani explained to WWD. “With this launch, we aim to introduce a stand-alone collection of bags, which will be clean, minimal yet elegant, extremely functional and with an incredible high quality.”
The brand has also announced a new Ports 1961 shop in Hong Kong, a Siwilai boutique in Bangkok, and a 19,376-sq ft Shanghai flagship located on West Nanjing Road. All the new stores will feature designs by Toronto firm Yabu Pushelberg.
“We will also refurbish the Paris and New York stores with the new concept,” added Cibani, who also explained plans for new locations in London, Milan and New York City. Milan will also host the debut Ports 1961 menswear show. The brand are moving the collection to the runway after a series of successful presentations. — AFP Relaxnews
