I'm excited to tell you a few select totes are now available at the Steven Alan store in Brooklyn (the one on Atlantic Ave)! If you are in the area, please stop by and have a look.

I've spent most of my time this past month getting a few wholesale orders together - that on top of a few other things, both work and personal, have put me a bit behind schedule. I don't think that I will be putting out a "collection" like this past summer, but hopefully in about a month or so there will be some new bags in the shop. As always, if you are interested in a bag or pouch not in the shop at the moment, email me and I'll see what I can do. Thanks guys, you're the best!

How wonderful! Your gorgeous bags will fit right in with all the stylish treats at Steven Alan. I'm sure all the hip Brooklynites will be toting them before long. Congrats!

Wowee Julia! Congratulations!

To be honest, I am not a fan of the idea of seasonal collections in general. It implies that the items are disposable. I think clothing and accessories should be bought with consideration of your personal style and their longevity in mind. That's one of the reasons I like what you make - it's stylish, high quality and thoughtfully made. They seem like pieces that will be treasured for many years.

Also, I am yet to meet anyone for whom the creative process works in line with the seasonal collection! I like the idea of a more organic process.

That was a bit of a rant, wasn't it! Good luck with the wholesale orders!

Thank you guys so much for your words of encouragement - I really appreciate it!! :)

Belinda, Wow, you took the words right out of my mouth! I feel the same way about everything you said. I very much like lines whose clothes and accessories transcend seasons, things should not be disposable. I've been feeling a bit frustrated lately because I get so many inquiries asking if my items will go on sale and it's kind of hard to hear because 1. I feel they are "multi-seasonal" 2. I am making them! There is no quick turnover rate like you might have with items made in a factory. It takes me just as much time to make them now as it will in a month from now. Thanks for your thoughts, I was thinking about doing a post about the whole subject and now you've got me wanting to do it even more :)

Ilana - Thanks lady! They should be there now (they've arrived - but I'm not sure if they'll get put out on the floor right away?) But if you do check them out and take some pics, I'd be much obliged! Would make the trip down myself but it's too far for now :P

Do it lady! You seem to have a good following here and it would be great to get people thinking about the way that they consume.
