Love Story

You’ve been keeping your summer reading on the short side (read: tweets and feeds).

But you’ll want to upgrade to a novella for fall. A Novella Royale to be exact. The new line of handbags is crafted out of old leather jackets, an ecomanufacturing process that’s becoming quite the trend.

These carryalls, named after the designer’s daughter, are inspired by the rock ’n’ roll era of the late ’60s and ’70s and have serious soul. (Picture Edie Sedgwick toting one back in the day.)

This is no reworked hippie bullshit; these creations are stunners to be coveted. Standouts being Mister, a mini duffel with big gold grommets; Clover, a tote with silver studs; and Liv, a satchel covered in fringe. Styles come in a wide variety of colors and are made right here in the USA.

Making it one for the books.
