When I received an email showcasing new designer Jen Mascali's gorgeous handbags it was instant love. With a prominent family history in design and creativity in her genes, Jen and her brother Chris launched the very first Jen Mascali collection for Fall 2010 in New York, Milan, and Paris. A Spring 2011 line has recently been showcased, and the designer was selected to show at the Hotel Ritz during Paris Fashion Week. I have to say I was pleasantly surprised by the design aesthetic, and looking through the Spring collection I could easily pair any of the handbags with anything in my closet. The colours are soft and muted, with a style that says bohemian-meets-luxury. The diverse shapes and sizes are extremely versatile, and the leather is all Italian-made; I can picture the Sadie bag looking perfect with laid-back jeans or slung over your shoulder for a night on the town.
You can browse more of the handbag designs on the official Jen Mascali website. Recently named an emerging designer to watch by the esteemed Pitti organization, you can be sure that Jen is definitely a designer to keep your eye on!
