Destination Collection : Magazine Street Crossbody Bag

Destination Collection_Magazine Street Crossbody BagMignon Faget’s new Destination Collection features beautifully handcrafted leather bags in three styles designed with a woman on-the-go in mind. “The bags represent the journey that the wearer takes. They are her travel companions and tell a new story with each destination,” Mignon says. Thoughtful, subtle details like navy suede interior lining that peeks out along edges and rustic tongue and loop closures allude to patterns and designs Mignon often referenced in her leather and ready to wear collection from the 1970’s.

The Destination Collection is designed to work together, seamlessly incorporated into the wearers life. The three pieces are meant to be used in conjunction with each other.  The Magazine Street Crossbody accompanies the wearer on her trip to the destination. The Canal Street Clutch is what she changes to upon arrival. The Dublin Street Pouch is with her the whole time. It’s how she stays organized and effortlessly transitions from day to night.

The Magazine Street Crossbody is a versatile staple. Fifteen years ago Mignon Faget opened a new store on a Magazine Street. Now, the bustling corridor has become the shopping destination for local and unique retail. The Magazine Street Crossbody is inspired by a satchel that Mignon carries while exploring the shops and galleries on Magazine Street. Large enough to hold everything you need for a day of shopping, the bag features a slim silhouette that never looks bulky. Flap secured with tongue and loop closure featuring crosshatch stitch detail.

In Store Magazine, March 2014

Mignon Faget spoke with InStore Magazine about the trials and triumphs of operating a jewelry retail business in New Orleans’ tourism driven market for the March 2014 issue. Mignon Faget’s gallery in The Shops at Canal Place is specifically designed to introduce our brand to the visitors that flock to New Orleans for conferences and sight-seeing.

Purchasing a piece of Mignon Faget jewelry means bringing a little piece of New Orleans, Louisiana home. We strive to establish this connection with our visiting collectors! The culture of Louisiana is woven into every Mignon Faget design- from the Oyster Rings, Crawfish Charms and Shrimp Pendants, the Gumbo Necklace and Red Bean and Rice Necklace, to the Crown jewelry collection worn to celebrate Mardi Gras.

Amina Dearmon, our VP of Marketing and Sales, touches on this in the article. “The challenge is that out-of-towners are not very familiar with the brand when they get to New Orleans, and we have a very limited time to introduce them and educate them about what the brand represents,” Dearmon explains. “You really have to work harder at building that relationship and following up — because they are not just going to be walking by.”
