A new designer has hit the virtual shelves at Net-A-Porter! The designer is new to me too though. Before writing this post, I had never heard of them. Intrigued? Introducing Wendy Nichol! So far, there are only a few styles to choose from on the Net-A-Porter website. But I am already liking what I am seeing. Oddly enough, I have yet to find any significant background information about this designer. Here is what I do know. These handbags are handmade and they are produced in the designer’s New York studio. Yay for made in the USA! This designer also seems to have a thing for drawstring styles. Not all of her styles are drawstring, but a lot of them are. But who doesn’t love a good drawstring style handbag? I know I do! You really can’t go wrong. Plus these Wendy Nichol ones are so luxurious. Soft and supple leather, whipstich details, and (wait for it) tassels! They have just the right amount of edge, while still maintaining a degree of understatement. Oh, did I mention these bags are versatile as well? Wear the braided straps over the shoulder, crossbody, or like a backpack. What a fun way to mix things up a little bit!
New York-based designer Wendy Nichol specializes in creating super luxe leather goods. The bucket bags and backpacks featured in NET-A-PORTER’s Fall ’13 edit have all been handcrafted in the label’s Soho studio.
