Jill Haber to Launch Handbags

The former art director at Modern Publishing will launch a signature collection of exotic skin bags in specialty stores this fall.

IN A PICKLE: As the wife of BLT owner Jimmy Haber, Jill Haber has seen her share of handbags in his restaurants over the years, but none of them quite passed muster. So this fall she will launch a signature collection of exotic skin bags in specialty stores. A former art director at Modern Publishing, Haber knows a bit about branding, having once worked at Wells Rich Green, which was founded by advertising trailblazer Mary Wells Lawrence.  

The Jill Haber collection will be unveiled to editors Wednesday at The Lambs Club, and a private shopping event will be held later this summer at BLT Steak’s pop-up restaurant at The Capri Hotel and Bathing Club in Southampton. There are other traces to her culinary lifestyle in that the Ethan bag is offered in “pickle.”
