We checked out the sneak-peak of Japanese accessory brand, Samantha Thavasa and Hanley Mellon’s collaboration on their new Spring 2011 handbag collection and cannot wait to sport these come springtime!  The ever-stylish couple Nicole Hanley and  Matthew Mellon serve as the co-directors of this exciting project which appears to be quite the compliment to their creative-partnership, both in business and life.  Nicole described, “We design for the woman who is constantly on the go, moving, traveling,  your typical Manhattan woman.” Resulting in a perfectly curated collection involving five styles in three colors respecting exactly what a women needs.  Being that at What2WearWhere we are always trying to simplify a lady’s life we are thankful for such a pieces that answers Nicole’s  question, “if a woman only had five handbags to get her through the different facets of her day-to-day life, what would she need?” The price point is perfect too ranging from $200 to $500 and will be unveiled in February 2011 at the Samantha Thavasa boutique on Madison Avenue, for additional information please contact C&M Media, t. 646.336.1398.
