Hayden Lasher’s handbag collection for Belgian Shoes reflects the New York designer’s vision of timeless, classic design and construction. The design of the chic top handle bags focuses not only on furthering the form of the eponymous Belgian slipper, but on the function of the handbag itself. Each bag, manufactured with the highest quality Italian leathers and adorned with Belgian’s signature bow, is equipped with a cell phone pocket, a credit card holder, an interior zipper pocket and key ring and chain. Simple and existing with deference to a busy woman’s own style sense, the bags are a complement to her wardrobe and lifestyle.

Hayden is the great grand niece of Henri Bendel, who launched his famous dress salon over one hundred years ago and who was committed to classicism in his personal and business life. Not unlike Coco Chanel, whom he introduced to the United States market, he believed that some things never go out of style.

Hayden’s professional experience at Michael Kors, Marc by Marc Jacobs and Oscar de la Renta prepared her for the launch of her own line and with a wink and a nod from her Uncle Henri, she hopes to create a fashion legacy of her own.
