Designer Jill Haber, who launched her namesake handbag collection in 2013, considers her company to be a modern bespoke design house that speaks to fashionable women across the globe. Striking a balance between the elegant and the avant-garde, the vintage-inspired silhouettes promise current sensibility with traditional craftsmanship.
The collection debuts at a time when Haber feels women are looking for an expression of their own personal style; channeling the individuality of every woman who carries these statement pieces. Although undoubtedly modern in sensibility, the bags are also a form of tribute to Haber’s glamorous grandmother, a major style influence in the designer’s life.
“My grandmother loved handbags, jewelry and shoes. She felt an outfit was just a blank canvas until you added accessories. Many of her vintage handbags inspired my collection”
" JILL HABER
Jill Haber’s passion for design was born from an early love of her grandmother’s fashion treasures and ultimately the inspiration for her to bring her bespoke collection to the modern woman.
Having worked in the elite realm of Madison Avenue advertising and book publishing worlds, Haber cultivated her love of art, style, and design alongside creative visionaries who shaped her style palate. Taking these passions in her travels abroad, Haber draws influence from cities across the globe rife with artistic and cultural influence. The Jill Haber collection pays homage to Haber’s global, cultural, and vintage inspirations. Jill resides in Manhattan with her husband and two children. “Life is short, wear your bags” -Jill Haber
The Fall 2014 collection features modern interpretations of classic silhouettes. Luxurious python, lizard, stingray, and ostrich skins are hand selected by Haber for their uniqueness and showcase each original design. The collection is celebrated for its daring use of exotic mixed-media materials, including; mineral stones, specialty woods, precious metals, and Lucite. Haber works with Italian artisans to create hardware that is exclusive to her collection. Each individual handbag is created in New York City by European trained craftsmen under Haberâ€™s personal supervision.Â Â While women are her icons, men are her muses, and Haber does not forget them in her collection. Each handbag is named for a male figure that has inspired Haber at some pivotal point in her life.
