To celebrate the launch of the official website for Mischa’s handbag collection, I’ve uploaded the three promotional photos of the collection modeled by Mischa herself. Big thanks to Julia! For additional stockists, click here.
International actress and fashion pace setter Mischa Barton is delighted to launch her own Mischa Barton handbag website: www.mischabartonhandbags.com
New for January 2009, the website stocks Mischa’s second collection of sought after handbags which include vintage inspired totes, chic mix drawstring bags, small clutches and oversized slouch bags.
Eclectic new styles sit alongside first season favourites re-worked in exciting new leathers and fabrics. There is also a new range of must have purses.
Prices range from £20 to £200.
Looking ever-so-graceful in a safari suit, she enacts the role of a foreign journo in thebased on the Bhopal Gas Tragedy.
Earlier in the day, Mischa had been shooting in the Charminar area, (she’d also shopped there earlier and loved the colours on our streets) and happened to notice a dehydrated puppy lying on the road. Mischa picked it up at once, got a vet to attend to it and wanted to take it back with her to the UK.
The entire crew was quite taken up by the 2-month old pup and to everyone who kept asking, “How’s he doing?” there was someone correcting, “It’s a she!” Mischa was worried about the pup’s health all day and rushed to the vet after the shoot on Friday evening.
Totally taken in by the city, the Hollywood actress observed, “Hyderabad is a real inspiration in the fact that Christians, Muslims and Hindus all get along so harmoniously.” She is even impressed with the traditional masala chai. “I must admit I used to make fun of people who were all into yoga and chai , thinking it was another ridiculous health fad.
“But now I’m that person! First of all masala chai, the traditional way with milk and sugar is delicious, and this is coming from a Brit who only likes English Breakfast!” she added.
However, the actress is not so pleased with her progress in learning a new musical instrument.
“I must say my goal was to learn to play the sitar and it’s coming along real slow as apparently it’s not that easy to procure a great sitar teacher here, I guess it’s not late 60’s with Ravi Shankar and George Harrison roaming around unfortunately!!!!” she added.
A photo shoot of Mischa in her LA home from earlier this year has been uploaded. The shoot was originally featured as a story in OK! magazine (namely as the cover story for OK! Australia). The photos are by Amy Neunsinger.
Pretty sure I haven’t added these photos yet, so here is Mischa from August 2006 at a Teen Vogue party to raise awareness for global warming. This is back when Mischa and Rachel Zoe were still close. And a belated Happy New Year to all the visitors!
Another stunning shoot, this time by Tony Kim for W Magazine Korea. These were featured back in 2006.
So guys India has been amazing. A little frenetic, as they do things a little different here! So it’s been tough with the long shoot days to check in much! But the people are amazing, so eager to please and I’ve learned so much from them.
I’ve been having an amazing spiritual exploration visiting Hindu temples and learning about Buddhism, both beautiful religions. Hyderabad where we’re filming is a real inspiration in the fact that Christians, Muslims and Hindus all get along so harmoniously. I must admit I used to make fun of people who were all into yoga and chai tea thinking it was another ridiculous health fad. But now I’m that person! First of all Masala Chai tea, the traditional way with milk and sugar is delicious, and this is coming from a brit who only likes my breakfast tea!
I must say my goal coming here was to learn to play the sitar and it’s coming along real slow as apparently it’s not that easy to procure a great sitar teacher here, I guess it not late 60’s with Ravi Shankar and George Harrison roaming around unfortunately!!!!
Goa was my christmas break, and it was stunning, I actually went to South Goa (which isn’t the party side of town) thats the North bit, but I’ll post tons of footage for you guys out there. If only technology didn’t hate me and I was decent with electronics! But I went parasailing, jet skiing and swimming in the ocean for ages every day. The colors, fabrics, food will blow your mind….so stay tuned to see me on my vacation and what I got up to.
MERRY CHRISTMAS, HAPPY CHANUKAH and HAPPY NEW YEAR!!!! xx
