New York based label Jo Handbags is now in it’s second year of creating fashion forward, functional bags and accessories.
Designer Dee Argüelles made her name as an interior designer prior to starting the line in 2010, evident in the attention to materials and texture throughout the collection of clutches, totes and shoulder bags. Mixing boot leather, woven vinyl, burlap and waxed canvas she has created a rich, unapologetically unpolished aesthetic, embellished with hammered wire and statement external stitching .
The simple silhouettes and versatile designs appeal to fashion conscious consumers, looking for the go-to bag to complement easy denim and dressed-up rough luxe looks.
