Ela Accessories Designers Show Spring '14 Collection at Saks Fifth Avenue
Money, ID, lipstick, cell phone, keys—it’s the five-item formula that’s credited Ela and Martin Aldorsson, the husband-and-wife duo behind the accessories line ela, with growing popularity, a stable of celebrity clients and a fleet of handbag designs to hold all of life’s basic essentials.
The modern-minimal look for which the Aldorssons have become known is clearly reflected in the dozens of handbag and clutch designs. “Humble luxury” is how they define ela; the accessories collection is a fusion of sleek lines, unexpected details and some of the highest-quality materials. Ela bags are meant to complement, rather than upstage, the wearer, hence the sophisticated, streamlined designs.
Lucky for style-savvy St. Louisans, the designers will make an appearance at Saks Fifth Avenue at Plaza Frontenac on March 20 from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. to present their exclusive Spring ’14 collection, “Jungle Punk,” and hold a Q&A with the audience about what makes them tick as leading accessories artists.
