Following her passion to work with leather, designer Mandy Coon launched a fully-fledged accessories line- featuring bags and other accessories. Her move to Big Sur, California has informed and evolved her aesthetic and inspired her to add more lifestyle items to her collection.
Hers is a design philosophy of melding innovative detailing with modern functionality, creating from an effortlessly cool, chic, and modern point of view, yet always adding a hint of playfulness and humor into her designs, and the brand itself.
A prime example of that is her signature “Ginny” bunny bag which has sold out many times over and continues to be in constant demand.
In 2011, Coon won the Ecco Domani Fashion Foundation Award. She was a recipient of Marie Claire’s “Women On Top” Award for inspiring and influential women. She was also named one of Paper Magazine’s “Beautiful People”.
Mandy Coon has been featured in Vogue U.S., Vogue U.K., Vogue Japan, Vogue Italia, Style.com, WWD, Interview Magazine, The New York Times T Magazine’s “Magnificent Seven” and Harper’s Bazaar’s “Fashion’s New Talents”, among others, and her work has been seen on celebrities and trendsetters such as Rihanna, Lady Gaga, Alexa Chung, and Zooey Deschanel, among many others.
Mandy Coon is proud to hand make everything in Big Sur, California.
