Anyone can make a luxe handbag, but it takes a designer with true edge to pierce high-quality Italian leather with bullet holes or dress it up with tons of sexy hardware. Enter Jack Germain, a handbag designer whose made-in-N.Y.C. line is known for its cool shapes, gorgeous textures and outstanding attention to detail. Tough-girl studs plus elegant styling equals a city-chic clutch for all occasions; a refined shape plus dark metal hardware makes the perfect bag to add a little edge to a girly outfit; a cheekily nautical credit-card holder brightens up a dull purse just in time for spring.
