LiiLii Zhao of Zhao handbags is featured on “Better CT”! Check out the clip.

Her stunning Vintage Cut collection is inspired by the artist Kara Walker’s silhouette work, and by vintage wingtip shoes. The contrast of black and white looks so lovely and goes with practically any outfit! And, even better, all of LiiLii’s handbags use eco-friendly Italian leather so they’re kind to the earth. Instead of using minerals or metals in the tanning process, she uses materials derived from sustainable farm bred Mimosa trees.

Searle Loves Kooba!

We couldn’t be more excited to be carrying Kooba handbags in Searle stores this fall! As one of Kooba’s first customers, we’ve been with them from the very beginning and have always been a huge fan of the line!

Launched in 1998 by the mother-daughter team of Bonnie and Abbe Held, Kooba made their mark on the scene with their ‘Sienna’ handbag, which is named after the lovely actress, Sienna Miller. Combining luxurious style with bohemian inspiration, the ‘Sienna’ quickly become the “it” bag and a favorite among celebs. Take a look at the bag that started it all:

                                                

The ‘Sienna’ skyrocketed Kooba to success, and to this day, the brand continues to design timeless, distinct handbags for the fashion-forward customer. If you haven’t had a chance to check out Kooba’s Fall collection, it is simply divine! The ‘Barkley’ just arrived in Searle stores and we are blown away by how elegant and sumptuous this slouchy tote looks. It’ll perfectly complement your fall wardrobe with its gleaming gold hardware and sturdy structure. Stand apart and love the difference when you carry one of Kooba’s designs!

Gotta Have It: New Beirn Bags!

That’s right! We’ve just received new fall styles of the much beloved Beirn handbags. If you haven’t had the pleasure of owning a Beirn bag, you are definitely missing out! Not only does it look chic and stylish, but it’s super versatile and practical with its spacious interior and sturdy structure. You can fit all your necessities, which makes it great for travel or a busy, on-the-go lifestyle.

Fans of the Jenna Watersnake Tote, which shot to fame after being featured in the Sex and the City movie, will be delighted with a new version of the bag. Beirn has taken the classic Jenna and mixed things up a bit by combining supple pebbled leather with their signature watersnake. The result? The Jenna Bubble Tote, which we must say, is a beauty! Of course, the classic Jenna returns in rich colors for the fall, such as this deep olive and mesmerizing sapphire. And, the Casey Leather Tote is another winning style with its clean, simple structure and roomy interior. Simply divine! Take a look at the drool-inducing bags.

Available online and in Searle stores.

Introducing Zara Terez Handbags

Already a favorite among Hollywood “It” girls, Zara Terez handbags are making their way to a Searle store near you! 

                                                            

These eye-catching bags will definitely turn heads with their eclectic mix of textures and thoughtfully placed details. Even the lining is equally eye-catching, featuring whimsical prints that are just as stunning as the exterior! We are smitten with the 108th street embossed croc envelope clutch (available in cognac, navy, and grey). The supple leather melts in your hand and the beautiful silhouette is timeless.

A third-generation designer, Zara draws inspiration from her parents, who own a successful apparel business, and her Great-Aunt, Ruth Saltz, also a handbag designer. New York is the driving influence behind each design, from Zara’s surfer-chic Atlantic Beach hometown to her current home in Manhattan, each style in the collection pays homage to a different neighborhood of NYC’s five boroughs.

Eye Candy: New Jalda Clutches

Finding the perfect evening bag for a night out can be process, but it doesn’t have to be with these Jalda clutches! The fall styles are just about to hit Searle stores, and we want to scoop up one of each in every color.

          Croc-Embossed Clutch                    Crocodile Mini Eden Clutch                    Watersnake Clutch

JALDA (pronounced YALDA) handbags are designed by Dutch designer Jalda Hoff, and are hand made in Los Angeles out of the finest and most unique Italian leathers and hardware.

The story behind Jalda’s handbag collection is a unique one: She began her career working in the corporate world working for the likes of McKinsey & Co. and Mattel. Although successful, she felt that her job was lacking creativity. Jalda aspired to combine what she had learned in the corporate world with her love for all things fashion and design. One day, her brothers’ bride-to-be asked Jalda to design a bag for her wedding. The reaction was so positive that she began creating handbags for her friends and family from a variety of colorful and unique leathers. Soon after, her collection of fun, fashionable handbags and clutches for every occasion was born!

New to Searle: Camille Zarsky

We love bragging about our newest designers at Searle! Today, we’re rolling out the red carpet for Camille Zarsky. Her luxe leather and python handbags are simply stunning. Take a look at these exotic python clutches in the fall collection. We can’t wait to get our hands on one!

                             

                        

These Monte Carlo Python Clutches also come in “Mini” sizes, which are perfect for carrying for a night out on the town.

As a traveler, Zarsky has a love for exotic skins, which is evident in her designs. The beautifully articulated collection fuses inspiration from her travels as a fashion stylist with her artistic childhood roots growing up in the Lone Star State. What makes her collection so remarkable is her dedication to using ethically sourced skins and producing her handbags locally in NYC. Her flawless fall collection is mind-blowing and features structured bags that are not just beautiful pieces to admire—they are also very practical. There is a detachable shoulder strap and unlike all stylish clutches, there is plenty of room on the inside for all of your essentials.

Now that you’ve had a taste of this gorgeous line, can’t you see why we are so excited?
