Some of my friends in NYC (the lower east side crew- yes you– Caroline, Wendy and Audrey!) are trying to make me (as they say) “downtown”. Though I see nothing wrong with my uptown sensibilities I do love their street edge styles and would like to mix it up with my current stash of luxury bags. That’s when I turn to GRYSON bags. No one is cooler and more downtown than designer Joy Gryson (hello, she designed and launched Marc Jacobs’ bag line with the Venetia and Stella bags!) For fall, Joy offers up the “Painted” bags (hand painted on soft leather or eel skin!). A multi functional bag with adjustable straps (looks chic as a shoulder bag and very hip as messenger style), zippered pockets in front and back plus a sprinkling of grommet studs on the straps that lends the functional bag a healthy dose of current trend. Sized at 14″x11″ it is very wearable no matter your size. And the price is amazing for the work– it’s hand painted!
