24 Days of Emerging Designers: Michelle Vale

24Days-of-Emerging-Designers-Michelle-Vale For 2013, Michelle Vale got it right. Her Hammerstein clutch, a piece that will make most do a double take, is made with a surfboard-like rope and bracelet. Whether it's worn snug on the wrist or on the shoulder (it comes with a removable silver or gold chain strap) it looks like this made in New York handbag in emerald, the color of the year, will be a refreshing mainstay for spring.

Learn more about the label at Michelle Vale and visit her blog Make it in Manhattan to learn more about her passion and support of designers and businesses in New York City.
