After the raging success of June 08’s Ananas @ 52 pop up store on NYC’s Lower East Side, Ananas' designer, Jennifer Lagdameo has decided to open another Pop Up store in NYC, this time in the charming Nolita neighborhood. Tucked on Elizabeth Street, this underground shopping destination will house everyone’s favorite bags from this season. Also, fashionistas rejoice--Jennifer dug deep into her archives for the occasion, and the store will feature original, “vintage” Ananas pieces from the collection’s beginning as well as one-of-a-kind styles to make all of your friends jealous.

Yet another reason to high tail it downtown to the Pop Up: In addition to one-of-a-kind and out-of-stock bags, the Ananas Nolita Pop Up Store will feature sample sale prices up to 75% off. For this limited time run, Ananas favorites will be available at drastically reduced prices. (i.e. The Furoshiki, normally $310, is $150. The Samantha, normally $530 is $230 and the Coco clutch, normally $98, will be $50. Special abaca and leather styles normally $98-$310 are $25-$98).

Ananas bags are designed in New York by Jennifer Lagdameo. Ananas debuted in 2004. Handmade in New York City, Ananas handbags combine unique materials such as custom tropical wooden hardware, abaca, and mother-of-pearl with rich Italian leathers. Designer Jennifer Baum Lagdameo takes her inspiration for the line from the time she spent living in the Philippines and Japan, and the Ananas range pays homage to its roots. Each bag combines natural elements with vintage inspired designs-to create a look that is as fun and adventurous as the Ananas girl! We hope that your bag takes you on many wonderful journeys.

Ananas merges natural elements with vintage inspired designs.

For every Ananas leather bag that is sold, a tree is planted through Trees for the Future, a non-profit organization that works with areas in the Philippines most affected by de-forestation, and for every eco-friendly bag sold, ten trees are planted. Ananas’ signature wooden hardware is custom-made in the Philippines from a sustainable source and by restoring tree loss, Ananas is lessening the imprint they leave on the area.

Celebrity fans of the label include Cameron Diaz, Jennifer Garner, and Meg White of the White Stripes.
