ALLISON MITCHELL is an emerging luxury handbag firm, designing and producing pieces made from exotic textiles, hides, and skins.
The minimalist brand offers a polished, deconstructed look that makes a statement with unique shapes in unexpected exceptional materials, and colors. The designer creates bags for women that strive to set the design pace, and aesthetic, rather than following it. Mitchell’s handbags and accessories are wearable pieces of art that empower the women while she wears it. It’s a collection of SHOWSTOPPERS, that do not look or feel like any other brand.
The company is starting to hit its stride, after the collections namesake designer, Allison, was awarded the prestigious RISING STAR AWARD FOR ACCESSORIES, at New York based Fashion Group International’s Rising Star award in 2017. She was cited as having her “finger on the pulse of what is new and missing in the luxury leather-goods market”.
ORIGINALLY, As the founder of a digital marketing agency in Dallas, Texas, designer Allison Mitchell did not intend to make a career in the fashion industry, but after an increased demand for her hand-made clutches, went beyond friends and family, to a buyer from a local luxury boutique, she launched her namesake label and never looked back.
Within two years of her launch, Mitchell’s bags were featured on influencers such as Jane Aldridge, Courtney Tropp, and actress Birgitte Hjort Sorensen. Even Oprah Winfrey owns an Allison Mitchell clutch!
All bags are manufactured, and finished by hand in New York City. Mitchell personally sources all of the skins and hides from around the world. She only works with sustainably farmed and raised sources when it comes to the animal skins and hides used. The linings of the bags are one more unexpected surprise. Mitchell selects very vibrant and exciting fabrics to highlight her specialized materials. The linings vary from vintage kimono textiles to chartreuse velvet.
