HEKTAD: A Collection That Pops
If you’re looking for a new accessory that will really pop, Pop Bag USA will make you stand out all season long! Pop Bag USA, made with quality leather, allows you to design your own one-of-a-kind custom bag. The posh bag might have originated in Italy, but this fun and fashionable brand recently opened their first US store in The Shops at Columbus Circle, where you can now shop all the latest bags, including their new limited-edition collection with legendary street artist Hektad.
This cool new collection showcases original, hand painted artwork by Hektad, featuring his mini colored hearts or his inspiring “love” tags on select eye-popping Pop Mini Bags and Pop Bag panels. Hektad, one of the most influential pioneers of New York City street art, will take your style to new heights. He might be a huge hit on Instagram and social media, but Hektad is also known for his impactful installations, including the installations taking place at Tiffany’s on 5th Avenue, as well as those at The Baccarat Hotel and even The World Trade Center. You can also admire his murals at the Oculus, Pietro Nolita, and more importantly, on your very own bag!
From the mini bags to the backpack style and large totes, you can choose your color and design, though you’ll definitely want them all! Hektad, a Bronx native, attempts to convey his message of love through his work, and now his passionate paintings will come alive on your Pop Bag.
When you purchase one of these exclusive pieces, you are also helping to give back, as part of the collections’ proceeds will go to support Bottomless Closet. Bottomless Closet is a non-profit organization that helps empower New York City women in need, who want to enter the workforce and achieve success.
Pop Bags, which are produced in Florence, might have fashion forward designs, but each piece incorporates the centuries-old tradition of producing only the highest-quality leather bags. Their masterful local craftsmen ensure that each product is not only beautiful, but beautifully made.
This limited-edition bag will certainly shine, whether it’s in the streets or in the first row of Fall Fashion Week! The only left to do is pick your own hand painted piece from the Pop Bag USA limited edition Hektad collection!
