Cult Label Newbark Has It in the Bag

Slip Your Shoulder into Something More Comfortable

newbark leather goods!

When your dogs were barking, stylist sister act Maryam and Marjan Malakpour listened and gave you Newbark, their line of foldable footwear designed to give tired feet a rest between well-heeled (read: high-heeled) exploits.

Apparently, your shoulder has also been sending out an SOS. Along with new styles (the Mayfair, a slipper with rubber treads; the Noir, a smart loafer with a little lift) of their classic shoe, the designing duo has just launched a collection of handbags.

Sensible (and a serious splurge) in sumptuous leather, sturdy canvas, or a combination of the two, the totes are sized to haul supplies for a busy workday or a weekend’s worth of essentials. Hardware is nil (your stuff is heavy enough as it is), but a zip-top pouch helps organize the interior when it’s snapped in and makes a handy clutch on its own.

These ladies really think on their feet.

Available online at net-a-porter.com, $210-$950. To see styles, go to newbark.com.
