Bag's new store at 94 Orchard.
We recently stopped in to see how Bag's new store on Orchard was settling in to the neighborhood. Earlier this month, they moved in to the spot where longtime tenant "Shop" had been. The space is bigger than their other shops in Nolita (they have "Bag" and "Shoe", both on Mulberry St.) and has a nice inviting layout. We were happy to find some adorable summer hats for just $18 (normally $20 but everything in the store is 10% off for the whole month of July).
They carry women's leather handbags from several American designers.
Most of the bags are by Tano and Sabina, and most of the wallets are by
Hobo. They also have leather shoes for men and women by Cydwoq (all handmade in L.A. with Italian leather).
Bag's outgoing manager, Catherine, told us about their fairly new in-house label called Relysh. Relysh bags are classic
shapes with clean, simple design, available in a variety of colors. They are expecting some
wallet styles next week, and several additional bag styles for the Fall
(as well as some new leather colors).
Simple yet stylie, Bag's bags are irresistible. Only time will tell whether local shoppers feel the same.
