I'm so excited to work with this New York based label. Quality, compassion, ethics, and taste all come to mind when talking about this brand. Ted Rossi is the mastermind behind this brand/collection and his sophisticated New York style gives these bags and accessories major attitude and sophistication.
I have their black python faux leather clutch handbag and cuff bracelet here and I adore them. The bag is sturdy and sleek and the bracelet is so versatile. I use the bag most often as a shoulder bag but since the chain is delicate enough to be tucked away, it easily transforms into a clutch when needed. I love the python print on the faux leather; it gives the bag a sense of elegance and edge simultaneously and the chic, minimal shape lends itself to just about any outfit imaginable. The cuff is a fabulous piece in itself; it fits even my tiny wrists and doesn't clunk around the way most bracelets do so it's easy and comfortable to wear on a regular basis. I find both these pieces are day and evening wear appropriate which makes them perfect additions to minimal wardrobes so you can get the most out of every piece you own. Check the details out of how I styled everything below.
As I said in the video, Ethique212 is completely vegan and cruelty-free. The transparency of their ethical business practices is the perfect modern business model. Minimizing environmental impact and doing much of their manufacturing in New York are just some of the ways they're changing the face of the fashion industry. Also, when you purchase from them, a portion of the proceeds benefit PETA!
