Clean, classy, and elegantly unassuming: when it comes to exotics, Hunting Season remains to be a relatively under-the-radar luxury label that never ceases to deliver the goods. Launched in New York City in 2006 by Danielle Corona (who learned the ropes working on the accessory lines for Valentino and VBH in Rome), the line is an uncommon combination of gorgeously constructed exotics and thoroughly welcoming price points. And all the pieces are finished off with handmade Italian hardware.
This season, Danielle has expanded her repertoire by taking on more structured silhouettes and box clutches. Not to mention an even wider array of exotics, from lizard to ostrich. The Horn box moves checks (the pattern I’ve been obsessed with all season) in a fresh direction for fall, while shagreen looks especially sumptuous, courtesy of a pure and simple clutch silhouette. Add the Mini Chiqui in rich blue python to the mix, the most detailed of the collection, and you have an alluring bag wardrobe on your hands.
The Mini Chiqui, $872, Shagreen Box, $655, and Horn Box, $550, will be available at Bergdorf Goodman.
