Make her holiday wishes come true with our favourite local finds of the season

Lloyd & Wolf and Liselott Montesano Susie Box Bag

When local TV personality Susie Wall covered the 2014 Grammys red carpet wearing jewellery by Liselott Montesano and a handbag by Lloyd & Wolf’s Larissa Stefani, a creative collaboration was born. The two Vancouver designers connected through social media coverage of the event and got busy designing this beautifully crafted evening bag, which features exotic skins and jewellery-inspired straps. The Susie Box Bag may be an investment, but it’s a classic, sophisticated piece that will stand the test of time.
