While the brand’s oversize leather city tote has been a runaway hit, Foley + Corinna designer Anna Corinna feels that the bag isn’t quite adequate for nights on the town. “I recently went out [at night] and realized I had nothing to take with me,” Corinna says of her inspiration for a new line of evening bags. “I ended up sticking everything in my pocket because I didn’t have any small bags that I could take out at night.” To remedy the predicament, she and co-founder Dana Foley created three evening styles for their fall collection — the Little Treat Bag, the Continental Clutch and Arm Candy. The Going Out collection retails from $225 to $365. Items are made from metallic and glossy leathers, and are now available at luxury department stores and boutiques nationwide.
