Introducing: The Puma Lydia Bag by Heatherette
“Anyone who knows me, knows my obsession with handbags. I fell in love with the PUMA bag the minute I saw it and during New York Fashion Week, having the right bag is an absolute necessity” said Lydia Hearst. “PUMA is giving me the opportunity to see behind the curtain into the design process, and it’s been a fun experience to work with PUMA and my friends at Heatherette.”

The PUMA Lydia Bag by Heatherette comes in three colors: “Delicate” “Night” and “Wild” Only 100 bags will be made, with most bags given to personal friends of Hearst.
