Two weeks ago I swung by the Design Exchange for the first ever Nella Bella launch party where I got to preview the Fall/Winter 2011 collection and the soon-to-be launched NB Man line (look out for it this Summer).
The NB Man collection consisted of functional luggage in a neutral palette of caramel, khaki, cool grey, black in matte pebble, glossy nu nappa and nylon materials.
The design of the men’s collection is very stylish and unisex and would easily work as a multi-functional work essential for schlepping files, paperwork and a laptop to and from the office and happy hour.
Standout pieces in the NB Man collection include the Stockholm Classic, the Prague and the Cabo.

The women’s fall/winter 2011 collection has me (almost) wishing for fall so that I could get my hands on these gorgeous handbags.
The Frankfurt (also called the magazine handbag by Nella Bella designer Tarek Al-Azbat), and the Kiev with its studded bottom won my heart and are available in pebble salmon, stone, cream and black.
Look out for my interview with Nella Bella designer Tarek Al-Azbat later on this week.
