Laura Vela Launches Pre Spring Exclusively at WiNK in Time for the Holidays

Manhattan-based fashion accessories designer Laura Vela, specializing in luxury handbags for the stylishly confident woman, is debuting her latest collection at New York’s leading women’s fashion retailer WiNK. Exclusively released through WiNK stores, the Ramble On collection for Spring /Summer 2014 presents progressive handbag designs in premium leather with striking compliments of exotic python skin.

Crafted with only the highest quality leather sourced from Italy, Argentina and Spain, Laura Vela is redefining luxury through global influences to edgy, minimalist designs. For the SS14 Ramble On collection inspiration has been taken directly from Vela’s nomadic lifestyle throughout the world. Seeing clearly the direct correlation between travel and the personal development of character, emotions drawn from Parisian architecture to exotic landscapes of Buenos Aires bring a uniquely cosmopolitan aesthetic to the collection that compliment the considered and refined designs of Laura Vela handbags. To facilitate the connection to the source of inspiration, each item has been named accordingly: the Pari bag tells a story of Paris romance, Trope of summer evenings in Saint Tropez, while Mia communicates the distinctive feel of Miami sunsets.

“A woman’s handbag is the most personal part of her wardrobe. It should be a reflection of her, both inside and out,” informs Vela of her underlying philosophy. Through this her handbags compliment the free-spirited woman who exudes chic and effortless style; the true woman within all women.
