Mischa Barton’s handbag line for ASOS unveiled

Mischa Barton has gone from being an actress on The OC and fronting advertising campaigns to designing a 14-piece handbag collection for ASOS.

Following in the footsteps of Patricia Field, Barton was first introduced to ASOS by her sisters which helped sway her decision to collaborate with the online retailer. “My sister is really into ASOS.com and told me all about it, ” she told ASOS magazine. “I didn’t want the bags to be available everywhere – I think it makes them more special this way.”

Known for her boho-chic style and her vintage inspirations, the line of every day totes, oversized handbags, clutches and evening is tied together by a floral motif that adorns each of the bags in some shape or form. Perha.

“I was very involved, from the types of fabrics, the buckles, the design, drawing, everything,” she says. “I just love bags. They were fun to design and a great creative outlet.”

With prices ranging from £20 to £145, the collection provides versatility in use and is one of the more original celebrity branded collections designed by Barton’s contemporaries.

Check out the collection at ASOS and let us know what you think?

I’m debating whether I like the Oscar Tapestry Oversized Shoulder Bag or the Coco Clutch bag enough to justify the price and shipping fees. They’re cute, but would I use it for more than a week?

    To me these shots make her look like Kirsten Dunst! In any case Mischa doesn’t look like herself.

    To be honest, ASOS is rather over priced for what they actually sell.

    Clothing companies cnatoct the publicists and wardrobe departments of production companies and say I will give you this dress for free if you mention that it is my dress on air .The publicist or wardrobe department tells the celebrity to put this on The celebrity wears the dress on the red carpet or on a show or in a movie and the clothing company or designer gets their name mentioned.The rest of the world goes OMFG! She wore that! NOW I NEED TO WEAR THAT! It is a rare thing that a celebrity wears something that becomes a trend that they chose to wear themselves.Celebs hire people to organize their wordrobe for them Celebs don’t have time to do it themselves Celebs that dress themselves get caught on camera wearing sweat pants, a half shirt, and hooker pumps It is all a process of Getting my name out there and associated with a celeb to push the brand It has very little to do with what the celeb does themselves. The only real acception to the rule is Oprah This woman is a pimp for whatever it is she likes $50.00 pair of plastic flip flops? Say the name on air and suddenly every braindead, brainwashed house wife on earth HAS TO HAVE THEM!Cheese cake that sells for $100.00 for an 8 inch round that is mailed to you in a wooden box? She mentions how much she loves it and the company is almost put out of business with the wave of orders The cult of Oprah is one of the few things that is actually pushed by the celeb because she likes it and not because she gets free shwag if she says their name on air. She is WAY too rich to care about free shwag.
