Luxury handbag label Junior Drake is a tribute to the life and legacy of actress Patsy Brown. Launched in L.A. by her son Dennis, the line not only bears Brown’s stage name but was also inspired by her unique confidence and sense of style. Its roomy lambskin satchels come in eye-popping shades, with lush embellishments like studded fringe and ruched cargo pockets. After garnering U.S. fanfare, the line became a hit in New Zealand and Australia — now its secondary base of operations. Patrons here and across the pond include Katherine Heigl and Antonia Kidman.
If you let the perfect bag or pair of shoes pass you by this season, here’s your chance to make up for it in Fuse’s final accessories sale. More than 40 fantastic designers – including Rosegold, West/Feren, Bloch and BCBG MAXAZRIA – are offering deep discounts on heels, sneaks and flats. And it’s not just shoes – you’ll find crossbody bags, colorful clutches and buttery totes, too.
A tribute to the legacy of actress Patsy Brown, luxury handbag label Junior Drake — Brown’s stage name — was launched by her son Dennis to much fanfare, with celebrity fans like Katherine Heigl toting his wares around Hollywood. Brown’s bold sense of style shines through in this selection, with luxe details and bright shades offsetting classic shapes and lush leather. Stash all of the day’s necessities — and then some — in the large Morgan tote, which is outfitted with metal feet at the base to keep it upright. And the Lorri satchel is perfect for those who prefer a smaller bag, lined with a stunning satin print and just big enough for the essentials.
These styles may be borrowed from the boys, but the final result is still undeniably sexy. Look to the gender-bending threads in this selection to lend an edge to the female form: Opt for slouchy bags rendered in luxe leather and adorned with plenty of hardware. Footwear walks the line, too, with classic oxford and high-heel peep-toe varieties, cool sneaks, and flat boots. And shades are so sleek, your guy will want to borrow them.
There's a reason women have embraced the hardware trend with such total abandon: It's the perfect way to add edge to your look without giving off a vibe that screams "Style Makeover." Gleaming studs, decorative zippers, elegant chains...the designs on offer from these three daring designers ride the line with aplomb.
