/ Monday, April 21, 2008 _Discover Artifact
We can't begin to describe how excited we are to be launching our women's line. Knowing that our customer has a discerning eye and expects nothing but the best, we've designed to impress with our first women's collection, Artifact. Inspired by the simplicity and functionality of an archeologist's field kit, our bag hearkens back to the days when international travel was new and boarding the plane was half the excitement of a vacation. Reminiscent of an old world work bag but with an updated look, these bags are perfect for the weekend or as an everyday bag. Grab the Weekender for your off the cuff weekend away or the Handbag for a stroll downtown. With smooth Italian leather, plenty of pockets (don't worry, we didn't go overboard) and distinctive contrast stitching you'll be the envy of everyone at the dig, or just your local restaurant. We know that this bag will be a hard act to follow, but we're up for the challenge.

/ Sunday, April 20, 2008 _Hole-punched and Handsome

In the 1950's, telephones were available in 8 "exciting"colors, handset shoulder rests were being distributed nationwide, and the first Transatlantic telephone cable was installed between Newfoundland and Scotland. A lot has changed since then but the telephones from this era still serve as the inspiration for our Brisbane wallet collection. Available in wine, moss and black (for some reason we decided against "flesh-tone" and "cameo mint green" despite their popularity in the 1950's), our 100% Italian leather wallets are every bit functional as they are stylish. Taking its cues from the handsets of these retro phone, the punch cut design brings a modern twist to an old classic, proof that inspiration can be found anywhere.
