Emmy Rossum Designs Namesake Handbag for Elie Tahari
What’s better than having a handbag named for you? Designing that handbag yourself! That’s exactly what Emmy Rossum got to do recently, creating the luxe leather “Emmy” bucket bag for Elie Tahari. The cotton-canvas lined tote, $398-$798, is available in four sizes and colors like tan, black, white, mushroom, yellow and metallic. “I thought a lot about the kind of bag I wanted: versatile, worn by the working woman in any season,” Rossum told WWD when plans for the purse were announced in January. “It was important that it had compartments in the sides, because I hate those big bags where your iPod cord gets mixed in with your lip gloss.” The Emmy bag is available now at Bergdorf Goodman, Neiman Marcus and Bloomingdale’s; a portion of proceeds benefit Safe Horizons.
