President Harry S. Truman said that Eleanor Roosevelt was the “First Lady of the World” in tribute to her human rights achievements. Eleanor did not fuss over the idea that the first lady needed to be glamorous and regal. Eleanor was a frequent traveler and it is said that she preferred simple outfits that could work with a variety of accessories.
This crossbody bag pays homage to Eleanor’s simplicity and her utilitarian outlook on the world and fashion.
Lorena Hickok was a well-known reporter in the 1930’s. She covered Franklin Roosevelt’s run for the White House. She soon established a close relationship with first lady, Eleanor. The two ladies travelled together extensively throughout their friendship. Our Hick bag resembles our Eleanor. While larger in size, the similarities between the Hick and Eleanor bags are step-in-step with each other, just like these ladies in their real lives.
