In the Market: Alexandra Satine’s Convertible Hamptons Bag


We love Alexandra Satine‘s Hamptons bag, which can be worn with a chain strap for a classic look, a fabric strap for more active occasions, or just the small internal insert of the bag alone as a crossbody.

Alexandra Satine worked in fashion for years before deciding to go into business, and her experience shows with her eponymous handbag line, which focuses on NY-made handbags that are as functional as they are colorful. “I wanted to do something different with handbags,” explains Satine. “I am a very practical person and the handbag is something to me I always wanted to get more out of, than just a day time bag, or a night time bag. I wanted a bag I could use no matter what the event or time, so I started to design my handbag line.”

While not every piece in the line can be worn in different ways, function and value are key concepts driving this young, local brand. “The whole thing is made in New York from start to finish,” Satine tells StyleCaster. “I work from home and the rest of the time I spend it in the factory.”

Her bags are not yet available online, but you can visit for retailers.
