I felt this second designer spotlight post (check out the first here) should belong to yet another woman making waves in the industry. As of lately Ive been intrigued by the design and aesthetic that the Rebecca Minkoff brand has to offer. Her line offers luxury handbags, accesories,footwear and apparel.It seems as though everytime I gravitate towards an edgy piece at the store, the tag usually has Rebecca’s moniker.
She launched on the scene in 2001 with a designed version of the “I Love New York” t-shirt that became an overnight sensation. In 2005, Rebecca designed her first handbag, which she soon dubbed the “Morning After Bag,” a.k.a. the “M.A.B.” This iconic bag ignited Rebecca’s career and with the help of her brother/business partner, the social media wave of 2007 and beyond her sales grew tremendously. She also designs mens leather good under the label Ben Minkoff.
Both Gwen and I love her edgy signature pieces that include leather, hardware and hard to miss studs. Sold at over 900 stores world wide its not hard to get your hands on one of her items. Her website offers the opportunity to shop the line, check out the upcoming seasons collection and catch up with her blog. Here are some items on my current wish list….oh to dream!
