Jules Handbags, founded by Staten Island, New York native, Juliane Perretti Randazzo, is a contemporary handbag and accessories brand headquartered in Red Bank, New Jersey and inspired by the world! The brand focuses on creating fun, whimsical scenes using mixed media such as ribbon, crystals and silk and digitally printing them on high quality nappa leather, vegan leather and satin. Jules Handbags function as day-to-day workhorse bags as well as unique conversation pieces!
Juliane briefly attended the College of Staten Island, where her love of fashion and design ultimately led her to graduate from the Fashion Institute of Technology in New York City with a degree in buying and merchandising. In February 2020, one of Juliane's dreams came true when Jules Handbags collection was invited to show on the runway during New York Fashion Week F/W 2020.
Jules Handbags was started with hats. In 2013, Juliane attended a Kentucky Derby party at the Jersey Shore donning a unique straw hat that she’d created herself to commemorate one of that year’s horses. The hat drew tons of attention and accolades from other attendees, and she even won prizes for best hat. The hats she created for subsequent years’ annual parties drew similar praise, and Juliane wanted to leverage her talent into more of an everyday product. Since she has always loved bags, she began there. Jules Handbags now features a full line of handbags and accessories, including belts, keyrings, card holders, and 3 styles of handbags available in a variety of materials including napa leather and vegan options.
