The story of Auster be­gins with founder Sa­rina Virk Tor­ren­dell’s search for the cre­ator of her hand­made leather bag she had re­ceived as a gift. The jour­ney took her to Ar­gentina, where she met her fu­ture hus­band, and to­gether they tracked down the ar­ti­san who for 30 years had been mak­ing qual­ity leather.

Each piece fea­tures unique de­tail­ing and hand-painted pat­terns. Show­cas­ing his work and other Ar­gen­tine de­sign­ers, Auster’s col­lec­tion of en­ve­lope clutches and half-moon shaped (which I nick­named, the “em­panada”) hand­bags have the ver­sa­til­ity and style to take you from day to night in a se­lec­tion of eye­pop­ping col­ors.
