Stella Maxwell and Irina Shayk are releasing their own handbags.

The two models have teamed up with The Kooples - who previously collaborated with Emily Ratajkowski - to create a new accessory each to accompany the brand's autumn/winter 2018 collection.

Stella, 28, thinks her experience in the fashion industry will help her become a good designer.

She told ''Throughout the years I've been working as a model, I've gathered lots of information on the process of creating fashion without even trying.''

The brand wanted two celebrities to adhere to its concept of photographing pairs of people, and when the retailer asked who the blonde beauty wanted to collaborate with, she knew straight away.

She said: ''Obviously Irina Shayk!

''It was a match made in heaven, because we have very different personalities and styles, so our designs didn't clash.

''There was no limit to the creative possibilities - The Kooples made the whole process so easy.''

The 'Stella' shoulder bag - which has a metallic clasp and chain strap - channels the runway star's more edgy aesthetic, and is created from studded calfskin manufactured in Italy

Stella said:''The quality was just as important as the look.''

It comes in three sizes and multiple colourways, while the 'Irina' is a leather bowling bag shape with metallic hardware and the multi-use accessory features a concealed mirror and is ideal for the ''girl on the go''.

Irina said: ''Every time you run out of the house you always forget your mirror.''

''My bag is also soft enough that you can put it in your luggage and not worry about damaging it. I travel a lot - and I take a lot with me! - so that was important.''
