YP Women: ela Clutches

Designer Ela Kowalewska has just launched what is bound to be one of the trendiest accessories of the spring season. After working for Hermes Canada and Burberry London, Ela decided to launch her handbag collection following a chance meeting with world-renowned designer Jimmy Choo.  The result and standout product of her line is an ultra-classy, sleek design called the M.I.L.C.K. clutch, designed to hold all the essentials – money, ID, lipstick, cell phone and keys.

These luxurious handbags are the perfect combination of luxury, sophistication and casual, and add a splash of colour to any outfit. The look is right on trend for the upcoming season, known as ‘the asymmetrical envelope clutch’. Locally crafted in Canada, these clutches are pure luxury with incredible detail in the make, whether with or sans fur. They’re the perfect complement to a dazzling cocktail dress or, depending on the style, for a regular night out with the ladies. Our personal favourite? The dark brown leather with leopard fur accent. 

ela was founded in 2010 by Ela Kowalewska and Martin Aldorsson. Ela is the mind behind the design, with a passion for leather goods and an understanding for high-end design. Aldorsson is the brains behind the line, with a background in marketing and advertising. Together, the two have formed a team that will be a big success, and are looking bright for the future of fashion. Goods are sold in Canada, the US and Sweden.
