Champagne Wishes

While the fashion world waits patiently for Alice Temperley's one-off line to hit Target, the Brit favorite has been busy designing a very limited edition bag for Moët & Chandon that is anything but mass market. The bespoke canvas carryall features a detachable champagne holder for the 'practical' picnic-er. Constructed of woven linen and trimmed in black leather with metallic studs, "It’s the same color as my ’60s Thunderbird," Temperley said.

A Moët-muse, the bag follows the pair's wildly successful collaboration last year which featured a Temperley London Tiara crowning the bubbly White Star.

Only 50 of the bags will be sold for $1,600 at Temperley London stores in New York and L.A. beginning in September.
