Last week I took a mid-day break to visit with co-creative director Anna Corinna of the handbag line Foley + Corinna. Besides being a long time fan of the New York City edgy rocker girl IT-Bag collection I knew the visit would allow me the chance to reminisce about one of my old stomping grounds. I spent five years living around the corner from F+C’s vintage boutique in the Lower East Side. As soon as I re-introduced myself to Anna we got into a “remember when” about a neighborhood that New Yorker’s are unable to control when they realize they have an old ‘hood buddy’ in their midst.
After a NY vs. LA vintage-sourcing discussion I quickly fell into handbag heaven. In addition to the classic Mid-City and FC Lady Tote there is a baby sister bag to contend with: the new Tiny-City Tote. It is a mini-me version of the cross-body Disco-City. It comes in an array of color ways and fabrics but I fell hard for the abstract floral print that will be available next season.
Can’t wait? Click link to purchase my current favorites:
Embellished Mid City Tote in Nude. Natural leather with gold leather detail and metal tassel.
FC Lady Tote in Mineral Canvas. Greyish gold canvas body with grey leather trim.
Disco City in Whiskey. Super soft leather in a versatile sized cross-body bag.
Tiny City in Sahara. A dose of glam packs a punch in this mini bag. Perfect for nights out.
I couldn’t resist including this embellished hobo bag as a wild card.
I think this laid back bohemian lifestyle may be rubbing off on me a bit.
