Ever since I spotted her handbags featured in the Bibhu Mohapatra fall 2016 collection during New York Fashion Week, I’ve been a fan of Ella McHugh. Now, bags from the lawyer-turned-designer are available locally at Saks Jandel in Chevy Chase. Maybe it’s the fact that they’re made in Italy from exotic skins and creamy, soft leather. It could be the sophisticated clutches and 1950s-inspired day bags. Whatever the reason, the bags are already a favorite of celebs such as Christina Hendricks, Jaimie Alexander and Rachael Leigh Cook.
