Hayden Panettierre For Dooney & Bourke

NBC's Heroes star and the rising it girl at the moment, actress Hayden Panettierre is following the footsteps of fellow Hollywood celebs Gwen Stefani and Jessica Simpson's fashion foray by collaborating with American bag maker Dononey & Bourke to create her first bag for the brand called the Hayden Bag.

Designed by creative director Peter Dooney, the bag was the fruit of Panettierre's dream bag which is a large shoulder bags with puffy pleats, magnetic closure, and totally stylish.

The Dooney & Bourke design team started to come out with sketches of the bags. Several revisions plus several inputs from Hayden herself followed to the creation of its prototype by Peter Dooney at Dooney & Bourke's design studio in Florence, Italy.

The re
sult was a great patent leather bag that's spacious enough for you to throw all the girl's necessities into it and not to mention ultra stylish. Available for a limited time only in four colors - red, black, brown T-Moro and white, the Hayden bag features a keyfob bearing the engraved initials of Panettierre (HP) plus 18-carat gold hardware for that luxurious finish.

"I wanted to do something people haven't seen from Dooney & Bourke before, so my bag is red patent leather," Hayden said to People Magazine.

"It's funky and fun and it looks squeaky clean, sort of like a brand new car," she added. "Patent leather is so chic. I love it! I also just got these dark-purple patent leather Givenchy pumps, which are to die for."

Apart from Panattierre's creative partnership with Dooney & Bourke, the brand has recently tapped into the South East Asian and Far East market with the opening of its retail store at the super chic The Grande Canal Shoppes at the Venetian Macau.

It was the same spot where Beyonce staged her first performance in the former Portuguese colony. Currently there are two standalone Dooney & Bourke stores in Asia with th
e second one located in Tokyo, Japan.

For a limited time only, fans can secure their Hayden bags from all Dooney & Bourke stores as well as via its online store.
