As the owner of the N and J Collection, Nichole is on her way to developing her line of accessories that include custom hand painted handbags and jewelry. The New York native gathers design inspiration from fellow designers. From interning at Oscar de la Renta (how cool is that?!), and “Betsey Johnson with her upbeat shows and fun bright colors”.
With her latest collection from her line, Nichole was inspired by the beach. “My grandparents have a beach house where I basically grew up”.
I can definitely see how the beach inspired these Chevron bags with the bold, nautical color scheme, and ropes for handles.
This artsy pink bag has to be my favorite! And check out that gorgeous hot pink lining fabric!
The combination of Nichole’s city environment met with her nostalgia for the beach, I’m eager to see more creations from her in the future! To see more of Nichole’s work, visit her site.
