Each ONA bag is named after a place that founder Tracy Foster has traveled, all the way from Camps Bay in South Africa (where she came up with the idea for ONA) to her favorite neighborhoods in New York, like Brooklyn and Chelsea. The entire ONA team loves to travel (like our recent trip to Miami), and we adore living vicariously through our customers who take ONA bags to new and beautiful places.
Michelle Alexis Newman is a photographer who doesn’t take life too seriously. She works in portrait photography, video and humor–and as she puts it, sometimes they overlap. We love her playful photos and whimsical approach to life in Southern California: Michelle’s current project is with a hilarious orange puppet that pops up in iconic places. She recently took her Antique Cognac Leather Bowery Bag and her puppet Doogan through Lake Hollywood Park, Griffith Park Observatory and the Chinatown District; the photos have left us California dreamin’.
Special thanks to Lauren Randolph for taking the photos of Michelle.
