Carolina Herrera Baez’s new bag collection is in honour of her mother.

The star is the daughter of famed fashion designer Carolina Herrera. She has created a new line of handbags for her mother’s fashion house, called the Mini Matryoshka collection.

“The size is an ode to my mother [Carolina Herrera] who is always complaining that I wear my bags too big,” she laughed to WWD at the Paris launch of the pieces.

The new bag is a smaller version of the brand’s iconic Matryoshka tote. It is made from a special kind of leather that is particularly luxurious and comes in seven different eye-popping shades. They have all been picked to work in tandem with the main line of clothes.

Herrera Baez revealed she hopes to create more limited edition lines for CH Carolina Herrera in the future, maybe even one a year.

“I’m already working on next year’s, it’s fun, it’s a collaboration and it’s also an accessory,” she revealed.

She heads up the fragrance arm of her mother’s company and also works on the children collection for CH Carolina Herrera.

Herrera Baez will soon be in Brazil overseeing the launch of CG Sport, a new scent for men. A line of clothes is also being presented and she has discussed how she came up with the fragrance.

“As I was creating the scent, I had in the back of my mind images of John F. Kennedy Jr., you know, images of him on a boat or with a football,” she explained.
