She may have caused some drama on the west coast of The O.C., but Mischa Barton is producing nothing but glamour on the other side of the Atlantic. The actress has spawned a successful and growing handbag line in London.
In fact Barton’s line, Mischa Barton Handbags, is currently in its ninth season(!) and is now getting its own boutique store. The actress will house her handbags – which range from $40 to $400 CDN — in a Mischa Barton boutique in London’s Spitalfields store, where she will also debut a new clothing and cosmetic collection.
“There are some very young pieces, some more sophisticated, mature pieces, and also some quirky stuff that’s more like my wardrobe,” Barton told VogueUK. ” It has to be accessible. I like the idea of making really cool things that are actually available to people.”
The actress and fashion it-girl will be making an appearance at the store’s opening come August 11. But this isn’t the first time Barton has tackled fashion: she has appeared in several fashion campaigns including Bebe, Keds and Philipp Plein. – Christian Allaire
