Jen Mascali

I have a new bag crush, and her name is Jen Mascali.
Jen has this amazing line of deconstructed-yet-chic hand crafted bags, and the coolest back story ever to go with then. Jen was inspired at an early age by her great grandfather who, as a leather artisan, handcrafted shoes for actresses, princesses and prominent women of his time. He even created shoes for Grace Kelly’s wedding that can be seen in Philadelphia Museum of Art! How ridiculously awesome is that? Knowing she'd like to carry on her great grandfather's legacy, she moved to Florence after she graduated and began working as the assistant to handbag designer Pauric Sweeney. Jen soon developed the skills she needed to focus her attention to her very own innovative creations, and her line was born!
