It More Than Just A Bag
Imagine a stylish handbag for each one of the 50 states. From clutches to totes, glam to casual, each one of the Star 50 Bags represents a state of the union and takes into account each unique geographic, historical, and “personality”characteristics.
Every handbag has its own story to tell and fun facts to deliver.
The handbags are expertly crafted, from the hardware to the trim. All of the textures and fabrics have been carefully selected to embody the spirit of the design while ensuring durability and style. The colors might reflect the state’s natural resources, landscapes, key exports, or other elements.

And then there is the New York Hot Pot with a low-slung, black Oregon hide body and short, tight fire-red ruffle that pays homage to the luggage of the 12 million immigrants who entered the US through Ellis Island between 1892 and 1924. Bold red patent letters and custom metal swing handles designed by jeweler Amy Kahn, are fun finishing touches.
About Star 50:
Star 50 Handbags was founded in 2002 by Amity Cooper. “It’s been a ‘sentimental journey,” Cooper says. “I call these modern heirlooms, because they trigger a fond memory or impression about a place or time. It’s similar to the way your grandmother’s china brings back fond memories of Thanksgivings gone by. People often buy the bags as a memento of a particular time or place.”
Why handbags? Nostalgia. “In the 1930s and ’40s, your hat was the accessory. You weren’t dressed until you had your hat on. Today, the handbag is the signature piece that sets your style. I call it a return to iconic style.”
With the Star 50 collection you can literally Choose your state of mindTM every day. Enjoy the trip!
