In 2014, Jason Stalvey left his career in medicine to launch his eponymous handbag collection, which launched at Barneys New York the same year. Stalvey started the label after he created his own alligator-skin duffle bag, and his passion for exotic handbags has only grown since then. As a modern Hermès rival, his collection combines exotic animal skins in genuine alligator, lizard, ostrich, and python, with old-school glamour for the perfect street-style handbag. Each opulent piece is handmade in the U.S. with impeccable craftsmanship using the finest materials. His luxurious 24-karat gold bags were pressed with real gold particles, and marked the first time gold has ever been embedded into animal skin. The functional yet stylish top-handle beauty-case-inspired bags are the most covetable in his collection thanks to the Hadid sisters.
