I have too many handbags. Said no woman, ever! So, here are 4 under the radar handbag designers you need to know about. The amount of style you get for the price with these 4 brands is amazing. The right handbag is the finishing touch which can make your outfit just O.K. or truly comment worthy. Case in point, I carried the handbag above to a business dinner and received no less than half a dozen compliments. So, with that in mind let me introduce you to these 4 under the radar handbag designers. Get ready to receive your compliments,
Nasa Yousefi started Yuzefi in 2015. She describes her handbags as modernist, experimental, and unusual. She makes unique bags that are well priced for the quality and design in the hopes that it will speak to like-minded customers looking for something new. Net-a-Porter and Neiman Marcus carry nice style selections.I love the sculptural aspect of her design. It’s like carrying a piece of art on your arm and the chain handle almost doubles as a piece of jewelry! The top handle bag will be around for several seasons and I’m betting this spring the chain handle will be the IT version of the top handle bag.
Here’ s how the designers describe their brand: “By FAR is a designer advanced contemporary shoe and bag brand focusing on modern pieces with a nostalgia for vintage. Our premium product is made with love and an appreciation for the finest materials, outstanding quality and comfort. A breakout social media success, BY FAR has earned a cult following among the fashion crowd, with a steady stream of influencers, actresses and stylists trotting the globe in BY FAR’s mini bags, simple booties and square-toe sandals that anticipate that 90s coolness.” The mini top handle bag pictured above is currently sold out in every color but more stock is coming for the Spring/Summer collection so make your wish list now! P.S. Their shoes are amazing as well.
Spanish designer, Mireia Llusia-Lindh, created DeMellier to design beautiful, functional and attainable handbags that are socially conscious. In her own words, “For every bag purchased we fund a set of lifesaving vaccines and treatments aimed to save the life of a child in need through A Bag, A Life, our permanent charity initiative that is very close to my heart and core to our DNA.” What could be better than a beautful handbag that helps saves the lives of children? This powder blue clutch would be amazing with silver sequins for the holidays and Megan Markle is a huge fan of the mini Venice handbag (she has it in forest green).
If you’re a minimalist, you’re handbag dreams just came true! These bags are created in Italy by craftsmen who have been working with top luxury brands for over 50 years. Each is made from water-resistant genuine Italian leather and a supple, stain-resistant micro-suede material on the interior. The designs are crisp, structural and minimal but totally functional and beautiful. One of my favorite styles is the Aria belt bag which can be worn as a belt bag, cross body, sling bag or a clutch! Has to be the most versatile bag ever.
In the spirit of the season, here is a bonus handbag designer to know, and for you readers who live in Dallas, Leatherology is a local designer! Their goal is to provide a personalized luxury product at an accessible price. In their own words, “You won’t typically see our logo on the front of our products, because our goal is to let you personalize everything and make it one of a kind. Each of our designs are personalized the old-school way in our Dallas, TX studio – from hand-pressed monograms using heated brass dies, to hand-painted lettering.”
