Coco Rocha is a busy lady. She just gave birth to a baby girl in late March, but mommy duties aren’t stopping her from staying on her grind. Rocha is dipping her toe into the wonderful world of handbag design thanks to a new collaboration with Botkier. 

Rocha has created an 8-style range of handbags for the label, which is expected to hit shelves in November – just in time for holiday shopping. The pieces were inspired by New York, Milan, Paris and London – places where the model has spent plenty of time in her day — and will retail from $268 to $448.

“I’ve wanted to create my own handbags for a long time, but I didn’t just want to lend my name to something and have no input,”  Rocha told WWD. The model is no stranger to design collaborations. She recently launched her first-ever clothing line with HSN, in tandem with the release of Disney’s Cinderella movie. Last year, she unveiled a jewelry range with BaubleBar, and in 2011 she created a collection with Senhoa jewelry, a brand which benefits women and children victims of sexual abuse, human trafficking and exploitation.
