Fall Head Over Handbag

Art by local female creatives is printed on the lining of BENE handbags.

You used to pen thoughtful letters to Santa to tell him what gifts you wanted.

Now texting a link to your mom with a present emoji does the trick. 

Get your phone out and press send on BENE, the luxury brand that will leave you absolutely swoony. Founder Ellie Schwing, a native of New Orleans, launched her first collection while living in Italy, where she continues to source her high quality leathers. Not only is each handcrafted purse an investment, each style has the added cool factor of custom-printed interior lining featuring local, original artwork by collaborations with female artists. From the chic Holmes crossbody with gold dippped hardware to the square bucket in black alligator, there's a look to suit every style.

Have you been a good girl or a bag girl?
