Add Botkier to the laundry list of top accessories brands doing lines for Target.

Sources said designer Monica Botkier is designing a line of bags for the mass merchant. Rafe, Devi Kroell, Loeffler Randall, Hollywould and Gryson most recently did lines for Target.

Botkier, a fashion photographer who launched her handbag brand five years ago — because she couldn’t find a handbag that quite suited her — sells her accessories at stores such as Barneys New York, Saks Fifth Avenue and Harvey Nichols.

This spring the brand launched shoes in addition to producing belts and small leather goods. Last month the firm’s Web site, Botkier.com, went live for e-commerce.

Neither Target nor Botkier could be reached for comment.
