Nicholas Knightly, the design director of leather goods for Louis Vuitton, has launched his own handbag label called Mallet & Co that are available exclusively on Net-a-Porter.com.

But this doesn't mean farewell for the designer and the French fashion house. According to WWD, Nicholas will continue to work for Louis Vuitton on a freelance basis.

"Thanks to Louis Vuitton's generosity and understanding I am able to continue to contribute to the legendary brand on a freelance basis in order to spend more time at home in the UK and nurture this exciting new venture," Nicholas said.

The three handbag styles available will be the Archie, the Hanbury, and the Zues. The bags range between $1,194 (approx. RM5,096) to $1,494 (approx. RM6,376) and are already up for grabs here.
