Brand New Bag

The women behind the fabulous Post- (pronounced “post-dash”) handbag line, art historians Katie McShane and Lois Munemitsu Eliason, are back with a brand new bag.

Well, more accurately, bags.

And tonight they’re celebrating the launch of their Post-Industrial line with an event at the W7 Collective in the Pilney Building in St. Paul. McShane and Munemitsu were inspired by the materials and technology that shaped the Industrial Revolution, so expect lots of studs and structure to the bags.

True to brand, this is not any ordinary event—the feel is rich, edgy, and sexy, not unlike the bags that the duo have designed. For instance, there’s no wine tasting tonight—absinthe tasting takes its place. Perfect wearing red lips with a Smashbox makeup artist. And, for the most intriguing part of the evening, get your tarot cards read (!).

But there’s something else: Tonight all the bags are 30 percent off! Made of 500 denier Cordura camel-colored nylon and accented with Italian leather and brass hardware, the bags are designed to make a statement and last a lifetime. Pricing runs from $45-$295, before the discount.

See you there!
