The MARCHESA brand is already known for mastery of evening wear with exquisite creations that have adorned celebrities and red carpets all over the globe. During New York Fashion Week, Marchesa will launch it’s first accessories collection for Spring 2010. WWD reports:

Marchesa will debut handbags at its spring presentation, which takes place Sept. 16 at The Chelsea Art Museum in New York. The collection of 28 clutches and evening cases are as elaborate as the brand’s dresses, with such details as beading, pleating and corsetry. “We had never done accessories,” said co-founder and designer Georgina Chapman, who founded Marchesa with Keren Craig. “So we thought, ‘Let’s approach it the way we approach a dress.’”

From crystals and embroidery to elegant satin and exotic skins, Marchesa’s new collection is the epitome of timeless beauty. Each bag certainly represents the brand’s unique design aesthetics we’ve seen in its dresses:
