In Item of the Day, What's New by Accessories Staff

Kristina GeorgeFollow your dreams, that’s how the saying goes; but what if your dream is to design a collection of luxury handbags and you work in the finance industry?

For Kamola Taflan and Krasimira Georgieva, the designers behind the contemporary handbag line Kristina George, money was no obstacle. In true millennial fashion, the design duo decided to eschew their roles in the investment management and banking industries to pursue their collective dream of designing a architecturally inspired handbag line.

Best friends since college, the pair behind Kristina George have mobilized their business experience to create a unique brand. Inspired by a deep connection to symmetry and luxury, Kristeva George designs incorporate gold hardware, geometric shapes, and dazzling crystals in unusual colors to fine leather accessories.

The team’s most iconic item, the Crystal Clutch, evokes geometric shapes enhanced by ethically sourced calfskin leather and hand-cut three layer crystals. Just look to Patricia Arquette’s red carpet clutch for styling inspiration.
