Victoria Beckham has spoken about the type of woman she designs for, describing them as "chic, modern and stylish".

The former Spice Girl is now releasing a range of new handbags, and she spoke about the collection to People magazine.

She said: "I design for a chic, modern and stylish woman who appreciates quality and luxury, as well as having the confidence to make what she wears her own.

"Bags and accessories are a natural complement to [my clothing lines]. I want to offer beautifully crafted pieces for every part of a woman's wardrobe."

The designer, who was voted British Fashion Designer of the Year in 2011, cementing her position in the fashion industry, has added new colours to her popular Liberty bag for the season ahead, which is available to purchase on her online store for the eye-watering price of €995.

She has also unveiled a brand new style, the North/South structured tote which comes in at €1825.
