Silicon Valley

We’re so excite to see our popular Annie Duffle in season 4 of Silicon Valley! Monica, played by Amanda Crew, is seen carrying it in various scenes throughout the season. Inspired? Get your Annie Duffle here! 

STORY

I’m so excited to say that I’ll be at STORY from 11-6 for a spring trunk show tomorrow, April 1st! If you’re in the NYC area, be sure to stop on by and say hello. Here’s a little interview with STORY and here’s the details.. Hope to see you there!

Mozart in the Jungle

Have you guys seen Mozart in the Jungle? To be honest, we haven’t either but we’re about to start! Our popular June Tote is featured in the current season and we couldn’t be more excited. Cynthia, a main character on the show, carries it and apparently it’s her main bag for the season. On another note, I didn’t know that Bernadette Peters was in it! I’ve been a huge fan ever since The Jerk…. 🙂

What a way to start out the new year! You can get your June Tote, right here

Video Collaboration

My husband is co-founder of a BK based animation studio, House in Motion. We’ve always wanted to work on a little project together so this past month, we finally did. John worked magic with my small leather goods and after three days of shooting, the results are amazing! Check out John’s stop motion videos, all below- he’s as talented as he is cute 😉

BTS

We had an amazing shoot this past weekend! Until I get the actual shots from our photographer, Carey Kirkella, I couldn’t help but share some behind the scenes. Our baby Portia made an appearance (free baby model!) to show off our new a/w collection of BKBean baby shoes and her smiles and giggles had everyone swooning! I stuck with my amazing team of Carey Kirkella (photography) and Kari Hansbarger (stylist). Our beautiful model this time around was Jieun Lee with photography assistance from Pete Reisett. 

Beautiful Saturday+talented team= one happy designer!

New Production

Since the last post, I had our baby! My husband & I welcomed a baby girl into our family and we couldn’t be happier (photo below taken by good friend and our photographer, Carey Kirkella). While I’m still working, I’m having to adjust to the new, sometimes random schedule. But rest assured, our online shop is still open and all orders are going out on time.

In addition to that, our Annie Duffle is currently in production at our NYC manufacturer. We’re restocking classic black and introducing a new color we have yet to name- it’s a perfect grey/taupe that we fell in love with! Everything should be in stock within the next two weeks so stay tuned. Or better yet, sign up for our newsletter and be the first to know when we drop new styles/colors- plus, you’ll receive 10% off your order for signing up!

An Awesome Tote

Our Charlie Tote in bone was recently featured in Refinery 29’s post of The Anatomy of an Awesome Tote Bag. Thanks guys! We couldn’t agree more with what they said- it is an awesome tote. What makes it even better? It’s now on sale, right here.

#knowyourbag

We’ve been using the hashtag #knowyourbag for a little while now and we want to talk more about that. Here at Shana Luther Handbags, we’re super duper proud to be made in America and hopefully, you like that about us too! We want you to know what goes into the making of our goods and where our materials come from- if you’re a past customer of ours you’re familiar with our behind the scenes shots at our local manufacturer. Clearly, transparency is important to us. Our leather is sourced from a tannery in Napa, California (if not here in NYC) and our signature cotton lining is also an import from California. Our hardware is shipped from a company we’ve been using with for years and they’re based in Ohio (we always get a friendly person on the line when we call, thanks guys). Last but certainly not least, our bags are small-batch manufactured right here in Brooklyn, NYC’s garment district, or handmade in the Shana Luther studio.

We want you to KNOW YOUR BAG and feel good about your purchase so if you ever have any questions about our products, please don’t hesitate to drop us a line.

Behind the Scenes

We had so much fun this past Sunday shooting our look book for S/S ’15! We worked with photographer Carey Kirkella, long time friend and wonderful photographer, and creative and branding mastermind, Kari Hansbarger. Our models were Lynn Do from NeckBreakinStyle and Aileen Olmedo from TheStyleBoro, two fashion bloggers who always inspire us are were so fun to work with. Stay tuned for official shots but for now, here’s some behind the scenes.

Her New Tribe

We love working with fashion bloggers, especially bloggers who are the epitome of the Shana Luther girl.  Stephanie Duncan at Her New Tribe is just that. Totally modern, independent and fresh with her approach to fashion, Stephanie styled her new Charlie Tote in bone with full on denim- a look that many of us shy away from! She nailed it and we can’t wait to see what else she has up her sleeve for the Charlie. Thanks Stephanie!
