The women’s designer, who got her start in accessories with the Morning After bag in 2005, is launching a line of men’s accessories for spring. Named Ben Minkoff, after her grandfather, the collection is inspired by his career as a fighter pilot in World War II. “Although he passed when Rebecca and I were young,” said Uri Minkoff, Rebecca’s brother and chief executive officer, “he left a big impression on us. We kept getting a lot of requests for a men’s line, and when we were ready, we thought we’d pay homage to him [by naming the collection after him].”
