One afternoon a few years ago, Patti Hansen’s daughters were rummaging through her closet and happened upon a cross-body bag made by a close friend who worked as a stylist. The bag’s unique look inspired the former model to launch her own handbag collection called Hung On U, which will hit the shelves of Barneys New York today.
“There’s no other bag on the market with that shape. It’s so wearable,” Hansen told WWD. “I’m really a boots and jeans kind of girl.”
