Lydia Hearst for Puma Bags: Love It or Hate It?

Model of the week Lydia Hearst has teamed up with Heatherette designers Traver Rains and Richie Rich to design a collection of handbags for sportswear brand Puma.

The 10 limited-edition Puma Lydia bags, around $100, are inspired by the French 77 Racket Bag. On Tuesday, Lydia (left) proudly modeled two of her bags at a press brunch in NYC. They're patent, sporty, but would you be caught with one at the gym?

I love Heatheretter, but I can't stand Lydia Hearst, so I'm not sure - I like the gray one and I kind of like the black one but I would have to see them...

Why do they have to be so big? What are people hauling around nowadays that makes them use luggage as their everyday handbag?

No no no. tacky unless you are only using it as a gym bag.

The gray one looks delicious! I think I'm a little biased because I just love Puma. They've always been able to create sporty, casual bags and shoes that were still fashionable and cool.

Why are some of my favorite designers all pairing up with Puma? Alexander McQueen, now Heatherette?? I don't really get it.

I hate the bags. And what is up with her? Is she famous for any reason other than being a Hearst?

I think it's the handles on these that ruin it for me. And, the need to pleather-ize everything also adds to the "tacky" factor. In the end, it could have been worse but it could have been MUCH better too.

I think they're pretty tacky, although that element was to be exoected when I heard Heatherette helped her out with the designs. And what qualifies her to design bags?
