Katie Holmes Debuts Her Valextra for Holmes & Yang Bag

Katie Holmes was spotted out in New York City this afternoon after running errands ahead of tonight’s premiere of her latest movie, “The Decision.”

She was dressed casually wearing jeans, a khaki jacket and croc boots.

As you know Katie has been working with Jeanne Yang on their Holmes & Yang collection for a while now.

The collection recently expanded with the addition of bags following a collaboration with the luxury Italian house Valextra.

This collaboration was a natural choice for Holmes & Yang, considering Katie had a mild obsession with their bags back in 2009.

Katie opted to debut a dark grey version of the Valextra for Holmes & Yang bag with a croc-embossed leather flap detail today.

I’m sure people are going to make the comparison with Victoria Beckham’s bag collection, but I think the Valextra for Holmes & Yang bag seems more wearable for everyday use.

The Valextra for Holmes & Yang line consists of one bag in different colourways and 3 different sizes. The best feature of this bag is the iPad compartment.

    It looks like a very handsome bag, but I wonder if the straps are long enough for it to be “shoulderable”. Katie seems to be struggling with it.

      That was my thought too – otherwise, i kinda like it, the sleeve for ipad is a great addition.

    Saw the bag on BagSnob last week. I didn’t really like it. Now that I see her with it. I know I don’t like it.

        I am talking about the bag. I think that it’s boring. Not my style. I wasn’t making any references to Katie Holmes. I happen to like her Holmes&Yang clothing. Just not the bag.

    I agree about the shoulder. It needs to not be too snug nor too free that it falls down all the time. Victoria Beckham’s bags were ridiculous. I have high hopes for Katie’s.

      I meant this is gorgeous and chic. It looks like it will last forever and is FUNCTIONAL. Hear that Victoria Beckham?
