Emily Ratajkowski Unveils Her Stylish New Campaign for The Kooples

The model designed her own street style-perfect handbag, and we need it NOW.

Emily Ratajkowski has officially lent her style sensibilities to aid in the creation of the perfect “It” handbag fashion girls everywhere will be obsessed with. The model, activist, and actress is the new face of fashion brand The Kooples‘ Fall/Winter campaign, and worked closely with designers to create her own bag, which is appropriately called the “Iconic Emily Bag.” It’s quite the occasion, as this collaboration marks the brand’s first time offering a full range of leather goods.

Emily’s now-shoppable purse comes in three different sizes and six trendy colors, including a classic black, bold red, taupe, chic mustard yellow, must-have jade green, and midnight blue.

“The Emily bag by The Kooples bag is distinguished by its understated lines highlighted by metal hardware and strong details evoking the rock ‘n’ roll spirit of our Fashion House,” the brand shared. “It is resolutely feminine and truly designed like a piece of jewelry, embellished with The Kooples signature engraved clasp and gold-tone metal corners trimmed with screws.”

“Inspired by guitar straps, the leather handle of the Emily by The Kooples allows graceful freedom of movement. Its elegance doesn’t detract from its practicality: numerous pockets, an adjustable removable handle so it can be worn over the shoulder or across the body, a curved handle so it can be carried in the hand, and a clasp to keep your essential items safe and sound,” the statement elaborated. “A removable mirror engraved with Emily’s manifesto: JUST KEEP MY BAG, ringing like a hymn to freedom, is our companion from morning to evening and slips discreetly into its own leather case.”

Emily will also be starring in the brand’s latest campaign video, a short film titled “The Breakup.”
