The Bag Snobs (Tina Craig and her behind-the-scenes partner Kelly Cook) are launching their own line of handbags, and they're debuting mid-May on HSN. Called Snob Essentials, the affordable faux-leather bags, which range in price from $68-$128, are a far cry from the merchandise usually featured on the duo's site. Craig, who lives in Dallas, and Cook, a Californian, will appear on HSN May 15 to sell the bags, which feature custom-made gold silver-plated hardware.
"Obviously we're [still] bag snobs," said Cook to WWD. "But it's unfortunate that meaningful designs are only at one set price point."
