Answered Prayers

A proliferation of new superhero movies on the horizon (I am Number 4, Spiderman) has us in the mood for color that goes *POP*.

The collection doing it for us this season is Meredith Wendell’s neo-luxury, uptown-quirky range of totes, bags and belts in Candyland suedes and python. Flashes of patent add a bit of brilliance and just the right amount of off-ness to super-charged classic materials.

Meredith, along with husband and business partner Wendell German has an aesthetic that harkens to Auntie Mame, and women who “Summer” in Newport with their twin Deerhound puppies, and take restorative holidays at the Dorothy Draper-designed Greenbrier Hotel in West Virginia. The latter serves as seasonal inspiration and backdrop to fantastical company photo shoots, which bring to life the playful, personal accessories of Meredith Wendell, and the great female personas of haute bourgeois society.

In-store now, we love the mini duffle of python and suede, clasping at the top with a box frame closure. Suspended from a delicate patent strap, the mini bag can be tossed about, carefree, as we walk the streets of Palm Beach on a lazy Sunday this spring.
