This week we visited the ENK Circuit.Intermezzo trade show at the Javits Center, a great showing of designers ranging from jewelry and handbags to jeans and evening gowns that is targeted toward buyers. After a small confusion as to where the Israeli design trio – Magnes Sisters were actually showing their items (the Accessories Show, a separate trade show, was also being held at the Javits Center) we made it to the right spot to check out Their spring 2009 collection.
Chatting with the Magnes Sisters proved again that they are everything you could imagine, extremely nice and down to earth. They eagerly showed us their personal favorite handbags (Yael prefers the bigger bags, Tamar prefers the smaller ones) and we got to preview their amazing Spring 2009 line.
The new line is appropriately named “Freedom” and is inspired by new beginnings in the U.S. (Obama!). The line includes the Liberty handbag, an oversized everyday bag that is available in 9 different colors, the Hope bag, a smaller version of the Liberty that is also available in 9 colors and the Grace clutch, a small but secure evening bag that comes in a sparkly champagne color or a glitzy black.
Their trendy-styled booth at the trade show drew lots of spectators. Everyone was probably drawn to the bright colored handbags in their new line and already envisioning which ones would go best with their summer dresses!
