Socializing Among the Bags and Belts at Jack Rabbit’s Heist Party

Angeleno belt and bag label Jack Rabbit celebrated its International Design Award for the new collection with a get-together at Heist, one of Abbot Kinney's trendy boutiques, on Friday night. We examined designer Mollie Culligan's fashion-forward designs while nibbling at tasty treats from Joe's Restaurant. Some impressions:

1.) Bags! We found the innovative detailing on Culligan's designs utterly winning, especially the external zipper pocket hidden in a diagonal pleat.

2.) Belts! Culligan has been building on her two classics, the wide-waisted belt and the multi-wrap skinny belt (we're up to quadruple now). A surprising development was the bow-tie belt (a leather bow as buckle) and the Anna-Rose belt (a skinny belt with a big leather flower attached to it), which are taking the bohemian spirit of the label in a softer, more literally feminine direction.

3.) Crowd! The turn out was great. When we left close to the end of the evening, the crowd was still growing and amusing itself.
