Last week I was invited to a pop up event for George, Gina & Lucy. GGL is a German handbag company that specializes in making fashionable, functional, and edgy handbags in a variety of materials and finishes. From nylon, to canvas, to leather, to a shiny pvc like material they call “Lacquer” there is something for all tastes. Their bags are sophisticated, girly, chic, trendy and above all fashion forward. They do not specialize in one look or even one market. From teenagers to the heads of corporations – there is a handbag for everyone. And many celebrities have been spotted with a GGL bag on their arms. January Jones, Nina Dobrev, Sophia Vergara and Kristen Bell are just a handful of the well known celebs that have been spotted out and about donning GGL. Even Channing Tatum was spotted with a GGL bag, and this is because they also make bags for men and children in addition to women.
Of course I wanted to know what all the fuss was about so I was uber excited to attend the pop up event last Monday. It was held at Foravi, a boutique in Soho which I am ashamed to admit I had not been to before, but I will definitely be back! The clothes are gorge! They had a wonderful DJ who played one of my favorite songs the Yeah, Yeah Yeah’s “Heads Are Gonna Roll” and there was wine, cocktails and horderves. In addition they gave away three hand bags! Unfortunately I was not one of the lucky winners, but I was fortunate enough to get to chat with the Director of International sales Ines Mesin. She gave me a sneak peak at bag that is going to be rolled out for the fall collection – and she even let me snap a picture of it! I love it, it has a metallic like finish, a wonderful shape, and it is BIG. I like big bags with lots of compartments. This is what I love about GGL bags, they are not just fashionable but also functional. Many of the bags are designed with multiple compartments in addition to the main body of the bag, so there is a place for everything. This is something I ALWAYS look for in a handbag. It was a fun, informative and chic evening. I am so glad I went, and stay tuned for the next event I attend!
