Who would have a thought that a business which originally sold belts and suspenders would eventually branch out to handbags, fashion accessories, luggage, watches, briefcase, shoes and clothes? Dooney and Bourke which was founded in 1975 by Peter Dooney and Frederi Bourke initially started their business with only two products: originally designed belts and suspenders. The business must have been good since by 1981, the brand decided to expand by including handbags to their collection. The initial Dooney Bourke handbags were the Tack Case and Equestrian Bag which were made from bridle leather. In 1983, the brand started to market their now famous All Weather Leather (AWL) bag which eventually set the Dooney Bourke brand as one of the top of the line fashion brands in America. The AWL bag is quiet distinctive with its sky blue duck logo which eventually became one of the brand’s more recognizable trademarks.
By the 2006 to 2007, Dooney Bourke started to cater to younger, hip clientele with their “Emma Bag”. The bag, a small oval sized bag is named after Emma Roberts, a budding Hollywood actress who, incidentally, is also the niece of the great Hollywood actress and fashion icon, Julia Roberts. Another famous young Hollywood actress, Hayden Panettiere also designed bags for the brand.
The brand is known for its chic, classic and even exotic designs such as the Giraffe print bag. The handbag comes in an exotic giraffe print patter in leather. It has dual shoulder straps, top magnetic closure and is embellished with a logo plate and decorative drawstrings. The handbag is further enhanced with an interior lining with zip pocket and cell phone pocket. This fashionable handbag can make any outfit look hip and trendy.
