As women of our age, we know a thing or two about what we want in a bag! If we added up every purse we’ve bought and liked for barely one season…ugh, we could probably have bought a new house or two. We want a bag that will stand the test of time. One that can handle our multifaceted lives. Hello, Grey New York Grey New England. We love how classy and timeless you are. Make sure you check back here in 2038 – we’ll prove it!

Say hello to the New England Crossbody Dumpling!
Did we fall in love with the name before the bag? Maybe. But then we met them in person and across our bodies, they went…only to be removed to take their pics on a day trip to Madison. Otherwise….crossbody dumplings all day long!
The dumplings accommodate everything we need, and not an unnecessary 5th lipstick more. Phone, wallet, business cards, keys, 4 lipsticks, all fit a dream.
Under the flap, that has a secure magnetic closure, you’ll find separate compartments and a central zip pocket, trimmed with Grey New York Grey New England’s iconic pull. The leather shoulder strap is adjustable through personalized stud fastenings.
Also, the dumpling smells delicious. Probably due to being made of Grey New York Grey New England’s signature bonded leather, expertly folded and seamed using hand-finished techniques by Italian artisans. The latter not relating to it smelling delicious, but definitely adding to the allure.
Ok, so say you need to carry that extra lipstick and a dog perhaps…
Say hello to the New England Shopper Tote
Henry (the caramel shorthair Dachshund in the toffee colored tote) and Brandon, Marketing Director and part of the Grey New York Grey New England power-team!
While we visited the Grey New York Grey New England Litchfield County headquarters, we chatted with Creative Director Simon Kneen. As the former head of design and creative director at retail giants Banana Republic, Brooks Brothers, and Pret-a-Porter for Maison Balmain, Simon knows good taste!
What was the inspiration for our current favorite of the moment, “the Dumpling bag” – did you eat Chinese food the day of its conception?
Tell us all about the leather…we love it when you talk leather.
Where can readers buy these amazing bags?
J. Seitz in New Preston, Richards in Greenwich, CT, and in Barneys New York flagship stores across the country.
