Who:
Patricia Lukoszek

Backstory: While working in the design and development departments of such firms as Nautica and Daryl K, Patricia Lukoszek found herself imagining ways to apply draping to accessories. She wanted a soft, slouchy carrier with none of the flashy hardware often characteristic of upmarket bags. “I actually approach the handbags as if they are clothing,” she says of the collection, which is named for her birthday.

Collection: Think boho luxury — the kind of loose, supple bag in which both a yoga mat and laptop can easily fit — in shades that range from toffee to russet to lipstick pink.

Stats: Wholesale prices go from $210 for a clutch to $395 for an oversize bag. The spring line will be carried by Barneys New York at Madison Avenue.
