Leather bag by Liucia

NIKI Italian Leather bag in Pale Aubergine by Liucia

Liucia’s design team is based between Hong Kong and Japan, so they know a thing or two about the destructive powers of a terrible storm. As a result, they want to help victims of Hurricane Sandy.

“We very much understand how these natural disasters impact everyday people because Japan frequently experiences these environmental tragedies. During the most recent tsunami Japan received a great deal of attention and support from the international community and this is our small way of giving back and hopefully, encouraging and letting those impacted know that people everywhere are thinking of them and standing behind them.”

From today until December 7th, Liucia will donate 100% of the profits of two NIKI bags to the American Red Cross. Go ahead, get shopping!

Fresh Talent Alert – September 21st

Posted in by

Another week, another influx of creative and unique designers.


Montreal-based jewelry designer Noémie Vaillancourt is in the midst of a love affair with feathers. Her Noémiah line combines fragile feathers with tougher materials like brass and enamel to create gorgeous contrasts. The delicate feathers are sliced and shaped to create various effects – ostrich feathers are ribbon-like on her Giraffe Feather Bib necklace and sharp in her Asymmetrical Arrowhead earrings. Her Feux Follets collection features feathers, stones and tiny mirrors, which bring each piece to life.

Liucia Japan

Liucia Japan is a partnership, a literal marriage of Eastern and Western styles. Toronto-born designer Alycia says her Japanese husband is her “sounding board:” They work on this modern brand together. Liucia clutches are made with colorful obi silk, cut carefully to highlight the various colors and prints. The line also features hand-painted bags and wallets with stunning color combinations. “Each bag and accessory should enhance the lifestyle of the customer in some small way,” the designers say, and we certainly agree.  

Jack Germain

New York-based designer Jack Germain was still making bags in her Lower East Side apartment when her pieces caught the eye of a New York Times blogger. Jack updates classic shapes with tactile details such as embossed studs and laser cut leather. Each Jack Germain bag is designed to go everywhere with you. As Jack says, “A bag is like a woman’s sidekick. My whole theme is that your bag lives the life that you live.”
