2015 Best Designer, Bags

Artemis Design Co.

There are “it” bags, and then there are timeless investment pieces that pack an aesthetic punch. South End designer Milicent Armstrong, an intrepid wanderer, specializes in the latter. She launched her business with loafers made from vintage Turkish rugs, but it’s her richly hued leather and kilim duffels and weekenders that are attracting the attention of local style mavens.
