A Clutch in Every Color
Shop Ela's exclusive collection of clutches at Gee Beauty.
August 07, 2012
Toronto import Gee Beauty is not only a makeup, salon, and skincare hub—it’s also the exclusive Florida home of Ela clutches. Why do we love Ela? For starters, each bag is made with buttery Italian leather, and hues range from scarlet red to cobalt blue to dainty peach.
All of Ela's silhouettes feature an asymmetrical flap and closure, as well as luxe, deep purple lining. Designer Ela Kowalewska was inspired to create her brand while working in public relations at Hermès Canada (hence the Gee connection).
In 2008, Kowalewska had a chance meeting with Jimmy Choo and received his coveted fashion blessing. She then partnered with marketing guru Martin Aldorsson to make her dream a reality. Her collection's signature piece is the M.I.L.C.K. minaudière. The acronym represents every woman’s on-the-go essentials: money I.D., lipstick, cell phone, and keys. 9700 Collins Ave., Bal Harbour, 305-863-3533
