Best of Boston

2023 Best Handbag Designer

Kent Stetson

Not content to simply create bags that make socialites ask, “Where did you get that?” at local galas, Stetson has recently been upping the ante on his quirky, personality-filled clutches. The fashion maverick is making bags for the LPGA team heading to this summer’s Solheim Cup in Spain (peep the patriotic flag design) and working on a collab with Grey Goose — all while finding new ways to wow his core customers. He recently snagged exquisite hide remnants from a top-notch tannery and is turning those tiny treasures into one-of-a-kind masterpieces.
