Handbag designer, Dee Ocleppo debuted her new, fabulous 2012 Holiday Collection for Deesigns by Dee Ocleppo on Wednesday, at The Plaza Hotel Residencies. The collection is set to premiere on HSN on December 12, 2012.

Guests mingled in the intimate surroundings of Dee and Tommy Hilfiger’s New York home, where they were able to browse and buy for the holidays at the exclusive trunk show. The line includes reversible and interchangeable covers that button off to create unique, multifaceted handbags and is best understood and instantly loved when seen firsthand. The special preview made guests feel at home while they mixed and matched different covers and frames of DEESIGNS’ handbags.

DEESIGNS by Dee Ocleppo’s focus is on customization and signature style, where one can choose a bag frame and from a selection of coverlets to create their own distinct look. The holiday collection includes a smaller clutch designed for a night out on the town, which can be worn three different ways. The clutch can be used as is, or with a reversible cover over it, which is faux fur on one side and faux leather on the other. DEESIGNS’ totes are also a popular selection with different handles including tortoise shell links and carved wood. All handbags have various covers available for each style and priced at under $250.
