What’s in Susie Straubmueller’s Bag?
Novermber 21, 2013
Susie Straubmueller became a luxury handbag designer by accident. In 2009, she wanted a belt that didn’t exist. She visited a leather master in hopes he would create it for her. Instead, he suggested she try and make it herself. He taught her about leather, quality, and getting the stitching right. Susie fell in love. She spent two years studying leather craftsmanship under leather masters at tanneries in Columbia and picked up Italian techniques at the Chanel and Dior factory in Italy.

Art? That’s My Bag.

At first glance, it might seem strange to pair a handbag pop-up with the titillating lightbox installation of U.K. artist and feminist figureLinder (continuing through January 2013). Upon further examination of Susie Straubmueller’s designs, however, it seems much more fitting. The handbags are visually arresting with luxe textures and clean lines. They carry a serious presence — the same can easily be said of Linder’s photographic examinations of gender norms and social constructs. While Straubmueller’s fashion takes are inspired by her own international travels. Read More »

Susie Straubmueller debuted her eponymous handbag label last night, and the clutches and top-handle bags in luxe skins were among our favorites we have seen recently.
Stylish girls like Khanh and Nini Nguyen and Darby Hull browsed Straubmueller’s exotic bags while snacking on lobster and lamb in the designer’s Highland Park home.
