While we were in New York, I decided to schedule some early morning meetings with some of the PR representatives I’ve worked with over the past three years. One of days, I headed over to The Sak Brand Group Showroom (which just so happens to be right across the street from the Empire State Building) for their Spring 2011 Preview.
The Sak Brand Group is one of the largest handbag companies in the US and offers a variety of designs, at varying price points, in the following brands: The Sak, Elliott Lucca, freebird, sakroots, Luxy, and Lina. I actually own a sakroots bag which I adore because it’s stylish, functional, and eco-friendly. sakroots is the company’s eco-friendly brand and this spring will offer fun, vibrant everyday accessories including handbags, iPod cases, computer bags, yoga mat bags, camera cases, umbrellas, rain boots, and more. The entire collection is made from eco-friendly materials like recycled nylon and canvas and supports The Nature Conservancy’s Plant a Billion Trees Campaign. Prints include Peace, One World, and Flower Power and the collection retails for under $139. Here are a few of the pieces that stood out:
freebird is a highly affordable collection offering carefree, eclectic designs derived from man-made leather. The brand will debut their hands-free compact nano bag. The bags were intricately designed with a focus on touch and texture and can be worn as a crossbody, clutch, mini backpack or belt bag. Some of the design features include hand-stitching, mesh metal and metallic hardware. The nano bag will retail for $35-$59 and will be available in fall colors like toffee, indigo, and cocoa.
This spring, the Sak will debut a new Crochet collection. The handbags will feature signature textured weaves and relaxed styles in bright, vibrant colors like papaya, boutique stripe, and pink multi. The entire collection will retail for under $79.
No compensation was received for this post. I received a thank you gift for attending the brand’s press preview day.
