My latest project — mink

With the fur trend all over the run­ways for this season’s win­ter fash­ions, I decid­ed to embark on a new project for myself and Chic to Chic. I’ve always loved the look that results from mix­ing tex­tures both in my jew­el­ry and the way I dress, and this sea­son the idea of adding fur {a tex­ture of its own} to com­plete a win­ter look has real­ly been res­onat­ing with me. Not over­done or too much of it, but just enough for a win­ter-chic look.


This paired with my pas­sion for acces­sories, is what ulti­mate­ly led me to inter­pret this trend for Chic to Chic by launch­ing a pri­vate col­lec­tion of mink hand­bags! The process itself was so much fun and I must say, incred­i­bly excit­ing for me as it all came togeth­er.

I sourced vin­tage mink furs of great qual­i­ty and part­nered on the design and con­struc­tion with local hand­bag extra­or­di­naire Shaunt Sar­i­an, of Sar­i­an Boston. After an ini­tial meet­ing to dis­cuss my idea, I shared my vision for the col­lec­tion with Shaunt and he start­ed to move for­ward with the design process. There were a few things that were impor­tant to me for this col­lec­tion that we kept in mind through­out the col­lab­o­ra­tion:

  • Since the mink is such a beau­ti­ful qual­i­ty fur, the trims and lin­ings had to match the aes­thet­ic and integri­ty of the furs them­selves.
  • I want­ed to offer a vari­ety of style options that could go from day to night wardrobe styles.
  • As I con­tin­ue build the brand, it was impor­tant to me that the Chic to Chic brand­ing was includ­ed but exe­cut­ed with ele­gance and sub­tle­ty.

After review­ing the pat­tern cre­ation, con­struc­tion and fin­ish­ing touch­es we land­ed on 3 ver­sa­tile sil­hou­ettes with suede and leather lin­ing and trim, fab­u­lous chain han­dles and a debossed Chic to Chic logo on the inte­ri­or suede lin­ing. I have to say I am thrilled with the way they came out!


They have offi­cial­ly arrived at the Chic to Chic show­room and I can­not wait for you to see them in per­son! To sched­ule a pri­vate appoint­ment please con­tact us at

Send­ing you warmth dur­ing this frigid mon­th of Feb­ru­ary,
