If there’s one thing I learned about Lisa Berck—the designer of the trendy B Bag—it’s that there’s a reason celebrities and socialites are flocking to her purses. They are fab!
Start with the material. Every purse uses lambskin leather, and that luxury is amplified by the quilted texture, sturdy chain strap, and red satin lining. There’s some degree of functionality at work as well, with an enclosed card case for your ID and three extra slots for your plastic, Pinkberry stamp cards, or what have you. The Swarovski red heart charm crystal was what really won me over—I’m a sucker for something that gives a purse a little oomph, and that eye-catching detail was just the trick.
While the B Bag looks oh so cute and tiny, surprisingly it’s large enough to hold my cell phone, lip gloss, chap stick, aforementioned ID card case, and my keys. I can easily grab this little purse when I’m in a rush and need to be hands free. Or if I have more time I can effortlessly throw this into a larger bag and use it as a wallet. I love that I can wear it multiple ways, across my body seemed the best for on-the-go, but wearing it over one shoulder looked a bit more polished, a good option for a night out.
All in all, a cute purse for many occasions that doesn’t sacrifice function for style. You may not be familiar with this designer or her bags, neither was I, until Lisa Berck talked with MODE about the story behind the bag.
MODE: What is the inspiration behind the Lisa Berck handbag collection?
Lisa Berck: The inspiration behind all of my creations truly comes from my relationship with God. I believe that He has given me a hope, a desire, a drive and determination to create products that are desired by women all over the world.
M: Where do the names for the bags come from?
LB: The names of all of my B Bags come from my children’s, grandchildren’s and mother’s names and the handbags are all named after words and attributes of scripture.
M: What inspired you to share your testimony on your site?
LB: Jesus inspired me. What Christ has done for me He will do for anybody else that truly gives their heart to Him and has faith and trust. I want people to know that I am just one woman… a broken woman at that, that had nothing but Jesus to give me hope. I love everybody and have a huge heart that wants everything good for everybody and if I can share my testimony and my faith and it inspires even one person, then I feel that being bold about my faith has accomplished something wonderful. All the angels rejoice when even one person gives their heart to Jesus.
M: Tell us a little about the quality of line?
LB: The quality of my line is exceptional. Each and every piece is hand cut and hand embellished one by one. Every bag is inspected by myself or one of my staff before it ships out. My leathers are brought in from all over the world and are some of the finest leathers available. The Swarovski’s that are used are direct from Swarovski and each are handset individually into every product. I have a warranty that most designers/companies do not offer. I have a 6 month limited warranty that I will repair or replace the item.
M: What is something special people should know about the Lisa Berck B Bag?
LB: From a personal standpoint I would say that there is something special in the name of each bag and from the physical aspect I would say that the functionality of the bag is what is special…You can wear it crossbody, or double the chain and wear it as an evening bag; you can hang it on any handbag for easy access to your necessities or wear it on a belt loop for a very cool and casual look. I say it’s every woman’s “necessory”.
M: Do you design each bag yourself?
LB: Yes. I design every product in my line.
M: Who is the Lisa Berck B Bag woman?
LB: She is any female that has a cell phone, a lipstick, ID and credit card and a place to go! With so many designs available in one functional and highly fashionable bag there is truly a bag that will appeal to every woman of every age and style.
M: What do you see for Lisa Berk Handbags in the future?
LB: I see an amazing future. My goal is to take the company to amazing levels in high end fashion and keep the company grounded by always staying at the core of the business and in close relations with all of my retailers. I will always keep it personal. I love working closely with all of my buyers.
M: What is one thing you want to share with each person that buys your bags?
LB: Have faith!
