L.A.’S GOT ANOTHER NEW BAG: Former Neiman Marcus Beverly Hills executive Erin Shaffer has launched a line of Made in L.A. leather handbags called Shaffer, meant to epitomize the “best five handbags that won’t go out of style,” according to the founder and designer. The classic totes, clutches and bucket bag are crafted from Italian calf leather with pig suede linings and minimal details like rose gold-plated rivets. Shaffer, a novice polo player, also included some equestrian touches such as a slip knot on the bucket bag that allows it to be worn at different lengths. “I learned to play polo after I met Nacho Figueras while I was developing programs for St. Regis hotels,” she said. Available at Ron Robinson at Fred Segal beginning Dec. 11, the bags, which wholesale from $135 to $350, are also available in custom color ways on the company’s e-commerce site.
