Jessica Wang

Jessica Wang a.k.a @notjessfashion is one of the most prolific digital storytellers living and exploring New York City these days. Featured in Make Up Forever’s nationwide campaign “Blend it In. Stand out” as well as an impressive 4-page spread in People’s Stylewatch, Jessica is adored for her relatable demeanor and fashionable charm as she mixes high street luxury with affordable brands.

On that note, we were wowed at how Jessica tastefully incorporated the ectu Palermo, made out of supple Italian leather as a day-to-night handbag. From grabbing a cup of coffee with friends to a stroll in the woods, Jessica expertly incorporates her passion for nature, color, and style in everything she does and wears. 



Lorna Andrews

Lorna admits to enjoying nice things in nice places. Her IG feed (@lornaluxe) is pretty much eye candy for aspiring travelers, fashionistas, and lovers of a life well lived. Fans rave over her Lorna Luxe x In The Style , however at the moment we’re admiring this gal’s classic taste in the city landscape.

We were thrilled to see these slick city snapshots of Lorna porting the ectu Palermo weekender. Here, Lorna wears the ectu Palermo as a crossbody handbag, showing off the luminescent gold accents and silver hardware as she strolls down the street. She gives this structured bag a casual twist by wearing it crossbody. With her hands free, this bag is the epitome of a no-fuss accessory.




Jenny Tsang

From Jenny’s travel blog to her popular IG account, (tsangtastic) she brandishes fashion sense while she voyages from hither and yon. Brands such as Christian Dior, Gucci, and Burberry have recognized Jenny’s keen style, and from the looks of things, Jenny has recognized ectu’s Palermo weekender bag as a flaunt-worthy addition to her ensembles.

We simply love this snapshot of Jenny crossing the street with confidence, as she commutes to her next business meeting using the Palermo as a work bag. Toting her moleskins, tablet, and travel necessities, the Palermo provides ample space for it all. With a designated internal sleeve to fit her 13” laptop and zip pockets for her personal necessities, this leather handbag embodies craftsmanship and beauty shedding new light to your typical work bag.
