ISSUE: Spring 2011
STORY: Anna M. Park
Suzanne Park appreciates a sturdy travel bag — she’s logged 300,000+ miles herself as a former corporate exec. Thank goodness she founded Plaid Doctrine, a line of cool, eco-friendly laptop bags. They’re made with recycled material from plastic bottles, but you’d never know it from the look and feel of it. The vintage-inspired designs of houndstooth and stripes trimmed with prime-grade, vegetable-tanned leather perfectly complement spring’s preppy-punk vibe.
Sunny Woan understands what stylish working women want. As a corporate attorney — she still practices — she appreciates a well-cut suit, but couldn’t find an equally stylish briefcase. So she debuted Taryn Zhang New York, a line of luxurious microfiber vegan leather handbags, briefcases and accessories, each named for the Alpha female in you.
Dao Chloe Dao for Nuo
Project Runway winner Chloe Dao has teamed up with mobile lifestyle brand Nuo to create a line of travel and business accessories that don’t sacrifice style for function. From a rolling laptop brief to a netbook envelope clutch, the collection features mix-and-match prints of modern florals and bold graphics.
