Opelle Woman - Amy Malcolm

Amy needs no introduction. She is the founder and creative director of Opelle and is the lifeblood of the brand. She is a true artist and entrepreneur who is continually exploring and refining her craft. It is not uncommon on any given day to see her sit down and create a new bag at the sewing machine, wearing a perfectly executed silk dress whipped up the night before, all while seamlessly caring for her 9 month old.

"With two kids and a small place, we spend the majority of the summer outdoors. On the weekends and after school we pack up the stroller & head to the farmers market, the park or the beach. The Meena Market tote is perfect for this, holding everything I need for myself, two littles and with room to spare for anything we pick up on the way. I can also stuff a Pochette or Micro Roberta in there so I have my own thing separate if I need them.

I use the Meena Saddle in Brown Rose day-in and day-out. It’s big enough for all my stuff with room for a few extras and still doesn’t feel like a ‘big bag’ Sometimes I’ll pop the strap off or stuff it inside and use it as a clutch. Perfect day to night. The color is the perfect seasonless shade that gives just a little bit of weirdness to my look which I’m really into."
