I noticed Jacque Martin at a fall fashion event with two of her girlfriends. They looked like a fierce trio with their basic black ensembles and colorful handbags. (Not matchy-matchy like the Olsen twins circa 1995, but like Charlie’s Angels with clutches instead of weapons.) When Jacque handed me her card, it all fell into place. She was a handbag designer and each lady was carrying one. Since that party, her brand, Jacque M., has launched its online shop. Now you can easily get your hands on one of her colorful creations. Moderately priced between $190 and $395, the collection’s highlights include an embossed croc clutch, organic shaped clutches with spikes, a classic leather tote, and what I suspect is a favorite of Jacque’s: the Glam Leather, Feather, and Crystal clutch. Shop them all here.
