Rebecca Minkoff, my FAVORITE handbag designer, has just launched her men’s line: Ben Minkoff. I’m not sure. I like the Nicky Messenger Bag
and the Urz Computer bag
but I’m not sure about the rest of the collection.
ABOUT THE BRAND…
Crafted as a study in classic Americana, Ben Minkoff marries modern practicality with mid-century ruggedness. Introduced in Spring 2011, the collection is inspired by the iconic military heritage of my grandfather who was a World War II fighter pilot. Incorporating military design elements into masculine silhouettes, Ben Minkoff blends nostalgia and modernity; functionality and style. This collection seamlessly incorporates into the lifestyle of a dynamic, hardworking man.
The Ben Minkoff collection synthesizes a unique blend of classic fabrications creating a new twist on the familiar. We have scoured the globe for the highest quality genuine leathers, rugged waxwear, selvedge denims, and custom hardware in each piece of the hand-crafted collection. Taking extra care for each piece, these classic styles will withstand the test of time in both style and durability. Equal attention is paid to interior and exterior detailing throughout the design process resulting in a perfect synergy of function, relevance and sophistication.
Rebecca Minkoff designs can be purchased at RebeccaMinkoff.com and select retailers nationwide.
