From banker to handbag designer. That’s the story behind designer Stacy Chan’s foray into the fashion world. Originally from New York, Stacy spent 10 years in finance in New York, London and Geneva before deciding to pursue her true passion – fashion, in particular handbags.
Stacy decided to start her own handbag brand because she loves clutch bags and wanted to make her own unique pieces. In preparation for her new venture, Stacy enrolled herself at a Handbag Design course offered at the London College of Fashion and spent a year working closely with a manufacturer in Italy before launching her handbag brand in 2013. Her first collection was well received and she picked up the first-ever Pantone Colour Award in the Independent Handbag Design Awards and won third place in the FashionBaseCamp’s British Fashion Startup Award in 2016. 3 years in, Stacy Chan has won fans from fashion insiders and is known for her clean lines and geometric shaped bags and clutches that comes in bold colours and quirky details.
Stacy Chan handbags are all designed in London and handmade in Italy using the highest quality materials and craftsmanship. From mini clutches to top handle and large comfortable totes, what stands out about Stacy Chan handbags are the unique shapes! Think an octagon-shaped clutch with floral details that is quirky but at the same time timeless and elegant.
For practical reasons, we think the Veronica Tote bags in Saffiano leather in various Pantone colour combination is perfect for the busy women in Hong Kong! We love a bag that looks good and is functional. Match Burgundy exterior with Cobalt blue interior and you have a stylish bag that no one else has in Hong Kong. Stacy’s bags are perfect for work and travel. It’s unfussy, big enough to throw everything you need in and holds all your essentials with its two inside side pocket.
