New York, New York

by Kasia on September 23, 2011

New York City. My first love. The one who taught me most about myself. And the one who I will always hold dear. These Paris days, as months turn into years, I look back on my New York chapter with great nostalgia. As a designer and forever a New Yorker, following the success of my Paris Collection, it feels only natural to create a New York Collection to express my affinity. As Paris is becoming a part of me, so too will New York remain. And now (drumroll)… the grand unveiling!

Upside down or rightside up, it’s NY NY!

Forever a downtown girl.

With a high regard for Brooklyn.

Home in the Lower East Side. Available with UES, UWS, Soho…

On the inside a NYC girl. The bag reversed.

All New York bags hand-painted {with love} in Paris. Available soon on my website. If you MUST have one now, contact me at! And let me know your favorite below…

Very cool, Kasia! I really like the bridge and skyline outlines on the Brooklyn and the Lower East Side bags. Hope you have as much success with this series as the Paris one!

Thanks Karin! I worked hard to represent New York in a way that would mean something to me, yet could be appreciated by all. (And was not cliche.) Excited to share this collection!

As a born and bred NYC gal, I LOVE THEM ALL!!!


Kasia September 23, 2011 at 7:45 pm

Thank you Kate! YOU are the reason I began to visit NYC soooo many years ago. And the love affair never ended. Sending my best to you and the girls!

Love your new collection Kasia! I think I’m going to have to buy a few for my New York friends. Perfect Christmas presents!


Kasia September 23, 2011 at 7:48 pm

Thanks! Let me know which you would like. (You can customize the skyline bag with neighborhood of choice.)

Great compliment coming from a fellow New Yorker! :)

You need to do East Village so I can carry one in my hood! Fabulous!

These are ABSOLUTELY gorgeous, I especially love them since NYC is my fave city in the world!!!


Kasia September 29, 2011 at 11:27 am

So happy you love them Andi! NYC is an incredible city and deserves it’s own bag collection!


Susan September 25, 2011 at 10:33 pm

They are fabulous Kasia!

Look awesome! My favorite is the Brooklyn bag =)

A Philly girl with great taste!


Samantha September 26, 2011 at 11:52 am

Oh Kasia they are gorgeous! I love the upside down, downside up one the best!

Kasia, you did it – they are brilliant! It’s so funny… what I was imagining in my mind when we spoke about them at Chez Nenisse (!) is so different from what you’ve created. I guess that is why you are the designer! I love them – bravo!


Kasia September 29, 2011 at 11:28 am

YAY! SO happy you love them! It was hard to describe my vision… et voila!

Wonderful! I love them all, but the whimsy of Brooklyn and LES are especially great. Bravo from a fellow ‘forever New Yorker.’
