Catherine Meyer - FOLLIS

Winner of the Best Handbag in Overall Style and Design

United States

2010 Finalist Catherine Meyer FOLLIS


What is your design philosophy?
FOLLIS, Latin for â??Ã?úleather bag,â??Ã?ù combines the purity of high-quality, finely crafted basic leather bags with a sensibility of style. We aspired to create bags that can take a girl from day-to-night, West Coast-to-East Coast, and everything in between. Void of flashy embellishments and excess price, but full of function and aesthetically pleasing design, the bags simply make sense.

What are the retail price-points of your line?
Suggested Retail

Do you change your silhouettes and materials every season?
We add new silhouettes and colors every season while carrying over best selling silhouettes.

What other handbag designers have inspired you?
Marc Jacobs for constantly producing innovative "must-have" products for his own lines and LV, and Rebecca Minkoff for how she has grown her business.

Which stores currently stock your handbags?
Coclico in New York, www.4sisters1closet.com, Liana Boutique in NYC. Verve (NYC) will be carrying several styles from the Fall Collection.
