ECStewart Designs Introduces New INKLines Leather and Suede Accessories

Calligraphic Lines Contemporize the Core of Hand-crafted Wearable Art Collection on Handbags, Personal Tech Gear and Personal Accessories

NEW YORK CITY – May 2010 – ECStewart Designs today rolled out the core of its 2010 INKLines Collection of Leather and Suede fashion accessories. Based on timeless designs and built around a selection of unique, illustrated handbags and personal accessories, the 2010 ECStewart line embodies the designers belief that you can take fine art with you where ever you go.

At the heart of ECStewart’s 2010 INKLines Collection are four beautiful leather handbags that give every fashion conscious woman a chance to show off her own personal style. Featured in Black Italian leather and suede, the bags also come in deep colors to match her Summer palette (Red Flowers, Peacock Purple, Gold Rings, Mondrian, and GreenLeaf).

The latest collection of handbags features four new styles:

• The Bryant Park Hobo is the premier handbag in the EC Stewart collection that is perfect dressed down for a casual outing or dressed up for an evening out. The Bryant Park Hobo is large enough to carry everything a woman need and looks great doing it. It features an all leather and suede design featuring INKLines imagery, a secret leather leash, large zipper internal pocket and reinforcing rivets.

• The West Village Tote is that easy to pack bag every woman loves. Roomy while still being sophisticated and smart looking, the sleek style allows every woman to pack her laptop, magazines, and lunch in this elegant all-leather tote with metal fittings and large zipper internal pocket. Calligraphic images grace the sharply curving side panels giving just a hint of the image front or back. A subtle pocket in front is large enough to hold keys or your mobile phone.

• The all-leather and suede EastSide CrossOver Mini is the perfect stylish, small bag for a coffee date, or a casual night out. The cross-body design is great for those times when all you need are your essentials – phone, keys and wallet. Calligraphic images embellish the front zippered pocket finished with a sassy leather tassle.

• Swift and savvy, the handcrafted Italian leather RiverSide Wristlet allows any woman to strut in breezy style. The front suede zipper pocket is accented with the Lisa’s calligraphic imagery on suede with an accessible open back pocket. The wristlet keeps you hands free to enjoy a fireworks at the lake, a walk in the park, or a quick trip to the ladies room.

“When we started this line we began with the basic premise that we wanted to create wearable art, so every item we produce is designed to specifically feature an aspect of my fine art,” said Elizabeth (Lisa) Stewart, CEO and Creative Goddess of ECStewart Designs. “To do this, we have spent several years developing the accessories line and came up with a process for applying my artwork onto the piece so that the image is clear and permanent, and the suede also retains the wonderful soft texture and nap. Based on timeless designs, our leather handbags and accessories will not only last forever, but the designs will too.”

Personal tech accessories in unique, leather and suede that further enhance ones personal style. These include:

• The Liberty Laptop sleeve that protects a 15-17″ laptop in soft, supple Italian leather and suede with the unique ECStewart INKLines design. Zippered front pocket embellished for computer peripherals is adorned with the ECStewart calligraphic image and cushioned with neoprene.

• The Midtown Mobile Phone Wristlet is a double-sided mobile phone case that envelops a cell phone in soft, supple suede with the unique ECStewart INKLines design. The wristlet keeps your hands free as you tuck your phone on one side, tuck your subway pass on the other and take the dog for that much needed walk.

Personal Accessories for body and office to streamline your style:

• Multi-functional accessory, the INKLines Suede & Moleskine Agenda helps to keep one’s life on schedule. Adorned with INKLines imagery fully wrapped around the journal, the suede cover is stitched, a suede bookmark is affixed with sexy rivet; and  your choice of Moleskine® journals are included.

• Wrap your wrist with Columbus Circle Cuffs in in both thin and triple wrap versions. These are a great way for every woman to show her personal style in more subtle ways both over and under her sleeve. The handcrafted, all suede cuffs features INKLines calligraphic image with Swarovski Crystal rivets to accent the unique calligraphic design with a hint of bling.

• Indispensable and chic, the handcrafted Italian leather Chelsea Bag allows any woman to tuck her personals and set off with style. The suede zipper front pocket is accented with the Lisa’s calligraphic imagery while the spring clasp quickly secures it on to anything.

For 2010, ECStewart Designs is also introducing the all leather and suede Murray Hill Mousepad, Soho Snap Travel Boxes, and INKLines paper goods.

Every fashion accessory and personal item created by ECStewart Designs is hand crafted in the studio by designers Lisa Stewart or Andrew Hayden. The result is that every piece produced is unique with it’s own special story and character.
