I've just returned from an opening celebrating Ananas' new outpost in New York's NoLita neighborhood. Designer Jennifer Baum Lagdameo began the line in 2004 and opened the boutique in March of this year.
In addition to her super soft and functional bags and belts, the new location is also carrying amazing scarves, antique jewelry (cultivated from estates in the Philippines), as well as other jewelry lines from designer friends.
One of my favorite bags is the Racquel (pictured above) and I'm in love with every piece in the antique jewelry collection (also above).
