International Actress, Model and Designer Mischa Barton announces her newest venture into the fashion world with her retro-inspired accessories and clothing launch in North America.

Mischa introduced her Collection of handbags in July 2008 in the UK and Europe. The Collection, which is inspired by “vintage treasures” from Mischa’s international travels, includes a mix of small clutches, totes, drawstring and oversized slouch bags.

Mischa brings her well known Bohemian Style to all aspects of the range. Born in London, brought up in New York, lived in Paris, and currently based in Los Angeles, she has a colorful mixture of styles, which are drawn from her experiences, and there is never a compromise on quality or functionality in her Collections.

Following the success of her handbag line that can be purchased throughout the UK and Europe she is set to open her “Mischa Barton” Flagship store in London at Spitalfields Market in late Spring. The store will encompass a Posh Art Deco Boutique feel.

Mischa’s Collections came to life as a result of a collaboration with her mother, Nuala, who helped guide her vision using elements of her eclectic personal style. They will be available for the first time in the United States, this Summer 2012. To get a taste of what is to come visit “Mischa’s Place” at www.mischasplace.com and www.mischabartonhandbags.com
