Hester van Eeghen
With their bold, unexpected color combinations and cool geometric shapes, Hester van Eeghen’s leather bags have gained a cultlike following in Amsterdam
. Just about every Dutch fashionista owns one of these distinctive, über-functional purses—and likely a backpack and wallet too. Van Eeghen also brings her stylish design sensibility to briefcases, laptop holders, gloves, and shoes. All goods are conceived in Amsterdam and manufactured in Milan
, which means excellent craftsmanship and the finest leather—with prices to match. Her flagship is on Hartenstraat in the chic Nine Streets area; there’s another location in the gallery district on Nieuwe Spiegelstraat.
