Collina Strada (the alter ego of designer Hillary Taymour) has been one of my favorite indie brands for a few years and counting. (I met her at the Of A Kind sample sale last year and pretty much blurted out I LOVE YOU HAVE BABIES WITH ME like she was Lady Gaga or something. Then I scampered away making a derp face, because I'm a dork. REAL COOL, TAMRON! Smooth move, Ex Lax.)
Anyway, Hillary's been crafting mathematically leaning leather and cloth bags with geometrical leather accents and otherworldly canvas, and she recently ventured into understated yet edgy apparel.
I bought this bb from Dear Fieldbinder (could I please live there, by the way? I promise I'll do the dishes!) in 2011, and it's still one of my favorite bags.
Anyway, New Yorkers, go hit up the Collina Strada sample sale from Jan 3 - 6 at Eva New York. Everyone else, check out Of A Kind's Collina Strada stock.
