Inspired by the transformation of items from the past, Crystalyn Kae modernizes these accessories, creating contemporary pieces that are functional and sustainable. By working with vegan leather, Kae manifests her ethical, eco-frinedly mission through her handbags and accessories. By combining her “love for retro upholstery, with Grandpa's anachronistic pattern-mixing influence,” Crystalyn Kae launched her first handbag line in 2001. Along with buttery-soft vegan leather, Kae incorporates lush velvets, textured tweeds and an artistic flair throughout her work resulting in unique accessories and handbags that never go out of style.
Whether strolling the open air markets of your favorite city or catching the train to work, the slim Metier Shopper will be the perfect companion. Not only does the Metier feature smooth, supple vegan leather but its shape can also be adjusted by simply snapping the sides. Thus, the flat, square shoulder bag can transform to a more triangular, contemporary silhouette. An exterior pouch and zippered pocket provide storage that is easily accessible- no rummaging around for your phone and keys! The velvety Ultrasuede interior houses zippered and slip pockets as well as a slim, no-bottom design for a profile that is sleek and streamlined. Worried about your beautiful vegan leather getting damaged by the elements? Don’t be! It’s water-resistant. So whether your carrying books for school, a laptop for work, or essentials for an overnight stay, you’ll be ready with the Metier Shopper.
