2019 is the year of hap­pi­ness— or at least we hope it is. And what brings more joy than a glit­tery gold hand­bag?

From a pop-cul­ture stand­point, 2018 kicked off with the Golden Globe Awards in Jan­uary when ac­tresses and ac­tivists banded to­gether in black evening dresses to show their sup­port for the #MeToo move­ment. It’s been a year of shock­ing rev­e­la­tions, but it was also filled with pow­er­ful, game-chang­ing mo­ments. On that note, it’s time for a lit­tle hap­pi­ness in 2019. If there’s one de­signer who knows how to spread pos­i­tive vibes, it’s Brett Hey­man. Case in point: this de­cid­edly up­beat Oval Bag in “Gold Con­fetti.” It’s made of hand-poured acrylic and in­cludes some­thing Hey­man calls “a kiss-lock clo­sure.” There’s a retro yearn­ing to the Edie Parker aes­thetic, but since the brand is named for Hey­man’s daugh­ter, it’s likely more about the fu­ture. “Life is se­ri­ous,” says Hey­man. “We need more joy these days.”
