Hogan book bag

While my analysis of using literary icons to produce and sell luxury goods will be forthcoming, I do have to say that faced with Jill Stuart’s dopey Lindsay Lohan or Hogan’s muse, Jack Kerouac, I have to go with the latter. On Tuesday, Colette will be introducing the line inspired by the beat author. As WWD reports, the collections features six leather goods pieces  exclusively at Paris
retailer Colette for one month. In addition to the $1,590 bomber style
jacket, the collection consists of two styles of shoes (a $295 high top
sneaker and a $475 working boot) and three bags (a travel bag, book
bag, and back pack priced from $950 to $1,290).

Also, it’s nice to have someone design a bag and call it a book bag– as in, they might actually carry around some books and not their irritating ipod. — Joanne Molina for Second City Style

(NEW YORK)
Hogan will unveil its first-ever outerwear piece on Tuesday, when the
Tod’s Group-owned brand debuts the Jack Kerouac Project, a capsule
collection of six leather goods pieces inspired by the Beat novelist,
writer, poet, and artist, which will be available exclusively at Paris
retailer Colette for one month. In addition to the $1,590 bomber style
jacket, the collection consists of two styles of shoes (a $295 high top
sneaker and a $475 working boot) and three bags (a travel bag, book
bag, and back pack priced from $950 to $1,290). Colette will celebrate
the launch by showcasing a series of photographs influenced by
Kerouac’s novel On the Road in its iconic rue Saint-Honoré
store windows. Following its debut at Colette, the collection will be
available in all Hogan stores worldwide beginning in July.
