About

At the age of 25, Jack Germain launched her namesake handbag collection. Germain envisioned a line that embodied her own signature mix of tough downtown chic with feminine detailing. Not one to change her bag everyday, she wanted each bag to transition seamlessly from ripped jeans to a cocktail dress. When the brand first launched, each bag was hand sewn in her LES apartment and that's when the line quickly gained acclaim with cool NY girls, and even caught the eye of the New York Times.

The juxtaposition of contrasting elements is an overarching theme in all of Germain's collections. Repetitive hardware and embossed studded leather are made classic with buttery soft Italian leather and timeless shapes. Inspired and influenced by runway trends, each handbag is relevant and trend forward, but built to last and not expire over time. "Unlike any other accessory we put on, handbags have the ability to be with us everyday. I'm never going to design a bag that someone stops wearing because the quality didn't hold up or the trend became extinct. I want to wear my pieces for life and I want them to wear with me, not ahead of me."

Germain takes the production and life of its products to heart. From the beginning, Germain has worked with a family owned factory that has been operating in the Flatiron District for nearly 40 years. Producing in New York decreases costs, fuel and CO2 emissions from transportation, so our product is not only high quality, but eco-friendly as well.

A graduate of New York's Fashion Institute of Technology with a degree in Accessories Design, Jack honed her craft interning for Cynthia Rowley, Prada, and Emanuel Ungaro all before the age of 20. She lives and designs in New York City, where all of her bags are made.
