Item of the Day

William Adler, creative director and ceo, at Will Leather Goods, says most people are surprised to find out that despite their rugged looks and exteriors, some 60% of his company’s leathergoods are sold to women, so it was only a matter of time before his company came out with a full-fledged women’s collection. Known as the 1920 Vintage Lock collection, the women’s styles are constructed using vegetable-tanned leathers and sculpted in ancient Florentine molding process, a type of construction normally found in luxury men’s dress shoes. The locks on the leathergoods are reproductions based upon actual early 20th century examples. Clutch, retail $225. (877) 467-0436. www.willleathergoods.com
