Founder and Creative Director Andria Mitsakos launched Dea Rosa as a tribute to her late grandmother, Rose, a sample shoe maker who had an inherent eye for design, a woman who was ahead of her time. So in 2010--the year that marks Rose's 100th birthday--Mitsakos unveils a collection of exotic skin handbags that echoes Rose's sensibility: an understated glamour that effortlessly combines style and substance. Strong shapes softened by texture and palette. A subtle clutch that easily works for lunch in New York and dinner in Milan. Inspired and enhanced by her travels, Dea Rosa embraces freedom.
