There are plenty of homes already filled with Jonathan Adler's signature "happy chic" furnishings, but now closets can be filled with his handbags too!

Over the weekend Adler and his husband Simon Doonan celebrated the launch of the new accessories line by hosting an intimate dinner with close friends at their Greenwich Village residence.

Jonathan's BFF and fellow designer Liz Lange made an appearance and revealed she was "slightly terrified" about his decision to design handbags.

She explained:

"I am a huge bag snob. If it’s not Hermès, I don’t want to wear it. It took me years to accept that Fendi was sort of an upscale brand. I knew I was maybe going to have to carry the bags. Nothing could have inspired more fear in me — except maybe if he was launching shoes. Now that I’ve seen the bags, I think that maybe he could design shoes."

Friendship at its finest!

The bags, priced between $38 for a clutch and $250 for tote, are already available on Jonathan Adler's e-commerce site with more to come in fall.
