Historically speaking, Jane is a tough name to live up to. With Austen’s perfectly subversive prose and Goodall’s lifelong dedication to saving the chimps, what’s a modern girl to do?
Make, Jane, make. Which is exactly what Jane Saidenberg did. The designer has just launched Jane Marvel, a line of bags (don’t roll your eyes yet) that’s as practical as it is pretty.
The vegan-friendly collection is made of laminated canvas (virtually waterproof) and comes in seventeen styles from weekenders to shoppers to computer cases (watch your back, LeSportsac). You choose the shape and print (with twelve good ones, it’s a tough decision), and they’ll include a special surprise (think eye masks and mouse pads).
There’s not a single carryall more than 120 bucks.
Talk about sense and sensibility.
