Iconic couturiers have teamed up for the Kate Spade and Current/Elliott 'Westward' collection of handbags.

The Westward by Emily and Meritt for Kate Spade New York collection will make its debut in August. Prices for the bags will range from $245 to $1,295, making for some more affordable pieces and those that fall in line with the iconic bag designer's normal price range.

According to Kate Spade, who is creative director of this project, "[Emily and Meritt] have such a great spirit and epitomize the chic, West Coast vibe. This collaboration really was about our girl stepping out of her normal comfort zone and hitting the road."

The combination of Kate Spade's preppy, feminine look and Current/Elliott's laid-back, rugged vibe ensures that these bags will be a hit with fashion lovers of all kind. While the Kate Spade and Current/Elliott 'Westward' collection will surely still have the polished and tailored feel of traditional Spade bags, a touch of California cool never hurt anyone.
