Now that you own all of Christy Dawn's model-approved dreamy dresses made of deadstock fabrics, it's time to complete the aesthetic by finding the perfect accessory: a chic and simple handbag that stands the test of time. LA-based designer Christy Dawn Peterson has just taken the guesswork out of this often overwhelming feat by presenting her brand's first-ever range of handbags.
Showcasing five classic silhouettes — the bucket, the canteen, the backpack, the crossbody, and the tote — and offering a conscious element by handcrafting everything right here in LA, Christy Dawn's latest venture might be our favorite, ever. Pricing for the genuine leather designs range from $359 to $599.
Take a peek at the collection above, shop them all here, and get reader for Peterson's next endeavor. "I've been working on a winter coat, which, I'm excited about," the designer exclusively tells us. "Although, its hard to be really excited about any winter piece when its 105 degrees outside!"
