Basket of Joy

Sunday, January 31st, 2010

Last year, Jane Ip, creator of Jeanne Lottie, started a painting class with her talented friend Alexandra Zeremski.  Their first water and acrylic painting together was Basket of Joy.

The subject of this still-life is a purse from the Jeanne Lottie spring/summer 2010 collection whose natural hand-woven straw tote with fuchsia silk flowers is lined with a checkered pattern. ($50; also available in matching flowers.)

How wonderful would it be to go on a picnic with a bottle of wine, some delicious cheese and crackers, and to spend a day out somewhere where the sun is shinning, flowers are blooming, and birds are singing?  Perhaps it’s still cold out there and it’s only end of January, but it doesn’t stop you from using your imagination.  May this straw bag will bring you warm breezes, and a basket of joy to fill with beautiful moments that will happen this summer!

True Happiness is…to be able to imagine

Fashion Woes: Keeping it all Together

Thursday, January 28th, 2010

We at Jeanne Lottie asked ourselves: “Sure, we know what makes us truly happy, but what is it that makes life truly miserable?” Answer: Leaving those car keys, or credit cards, or that favourite lipstick in your other purse. This spring, Jeanne Lottie offers a solution in the form of our new Front-Lock Smart Tote. In fuschia or silver-grey, the Smart Tote has a detachable pouch that keeps all your important stuff in one place. Feel like switching bags to match your Friday shoes? Take the pouch out, and toss it into your new bag. Our vertical and horizontal Front-Lock Smart Totes are the perfect leather-lined work bag. Easy to carry from day to night, they retail for $100 and $120. Switching purses from one day to the next just got a lot easier…because style without practicality is no style at all. Detachable pouches will be in stores at the end of February.

True Happiness is… toting with confidence.

Jeanne Lottie’s got purse-onality!

Saturday, January 23rd, 2010

True Happiness means making life more fun by putting your unique stamp on the world. Did you know that since we started making bags in 1985 all Jeanne Lottie purses have included our trademark silver handbag pendant? Creative fans of our bags often use the removable pendant and chain as decoration on other handbags, or even as makeshift key-rings. The converted pendant/key-chains inspired us to offer more options to JL lovers. We’ve introduced a new line of lovely key-rings to keep your keys in one place. Add some purse-onality to your bag! Check out some of our new styles: black and gold crystal platform shoes and the mini double-handle bag.

Our perennial bestseller: the signature JL Diamond Solitaire. It’s been flying off the shelves since we first introduced it a few years back. The Diamond Solitaire key-ring comes with a mini pink handbag charm engraved with our name: Jeanne Lottie, Canada. Retails for 15$. It’s a great small gift item for anyone who’s ever wanted to show off who she really is, and what she really loves.

Spring Things!

When skies are grey…

Wednesday, January 13th, 2010

Mid-winter blahs are hard to beat no matter how many times you visualize sandy beaches. Blustery winds and sleet and snow are enough to make anyone want to stay indoors and hibernate in pajamas.  We like to chase away the winter blues with a healthy dose of bright hues. Elle Canada’s January issue, currently on the shelves, is featuring our Pick-Me-Up bag, an electrifying mauve satin  and metal evening purse. There’s no excuse to stay cooped up when you can take this baby out for a night on the town! It’s glamour with a little bit of edge….just the way we like it.
