When Holly Caldwell was a senior vice president at Fidelity, a statement purse was her accessory of choice. But since leaving finance three years ago to pursue her true passionâ€”handbagsâ€”Caldwell has abandoned the CĂ©lines, Valextras, and Pradas in favor of her own luxe creations, which are dreamed up in an Acton barn-cum-studio and crafted in Italy and New York. The designerâ€™s elegant â€śLady Janeâ€ť frame bag, with its structured shape, roomy interior, and buttery leather lining, is a nod to the past, but done up in sleek, red-hot patent leather, it becomes a modern classic.
