Stroble is by designer and wardrobe stylist, Christian Stroble. Christian has created a menswear line that is also acceptable for women to wear. He has mastered his craft in these beautifully structured handbags. He uses familiar shapes like the weekender, backpack, tote, and messenger, which are unlined leathers and produced domestically, thus marring utility and beauty. From the brass embellishments to the dogtag labels embedded on the inside that resemble his grandfathers army tag, Christian has an eye for detail and beauty. Stroble had his launch party on September 4th the day before the always chaotic, Fashion Week. He had quite the gathering with other fellow talented peers, and has already been featured in Forbes as a new designer to look out for.
I met up with Christian at the Indigo Showroom on Broadway where I touched, and swooned over these buttery leather creations. I was also introduced to his jewelry, where he laid upon me a brass dipped nail, that is the perfect layering piece.
Make sure you guys make appointments and look out to purchase his bags. Whether you’re a male or female there is a midnight blue or black leather stallion awaiting you. I for sure will need to wrap my hands around the Doctor’s looking bag and/or the briefcase.

I met designer, Morgan Bogle at a party and immediately bonded with her over our mutual love for animals. Hearing about how she used to work at animal shelters and rescued her adorable baby, “Sugar” the pitbull in these photos, I knew she’d become a friend of mine

‘Freedom Of Animals’ is an eco friendly, animal free, sustainable handbag line made from recycled plastic and made with love right in NY, that will eventually evolve into something even more. Unfortunately, in our society a lot of us don’t realize or just avoid seeing what will happen to this world if we run out of animals. Beauty will go away and the world will come to an end if all of our furry friends and not so furry friends disappear. Who wants that to happen? I surely do not. We need to see a change and make a conscious effort to try and change this. I myself am guilty of wearing leather and think that many more designers should make a change and switch to a different method of design, like Freedom Of Animals, that way we can all make this transition and steer away from wearing real leather or furs. I think Freedom Of Animals can be slightly compared to Celine but who needs to compare. These beautifully structured handbags made by Morgan Bogle and Scott MacDonough can be worn from day to evening. Morgan who is a stylist as well wanted to create a bag that would be good for a girl who carries multiple items throughout the day, and she did so by compartmentalizing in each bag. Check out all of the styles freedomofanimals.com and please make a change!
