The New Nelle Showroom

Tuesday, November 1st, 2011

It’s exciting to watch an independent designer live out her dreams. For Laura Nelli–who in just a few years has gone from a publicist stitching bags on her own late at night to an accomplished designing being commissioned to create bridal pieces for Anthropologie–the opening of her Nelle Handbags showroom today in Minneapolis is yet another milestone to check off her ambitious list.  The chic new showroom within l’atelier couture showcases the entire Nelle collection–with more than 100 options for color and customization (the perks of shopping in the designer’s home town).

The 2012 Nelle line is on the shelves. Nelli’s structured evening clutches are dressed up in silk taffeta with opulent crystal appliques and exuberant bows (her adjective, I just love it). Prices range from $85 to $180; custom additions are $70. Allow four to six weeks for delivery.

Nelli’s everyday tote collection, Harold, will also be available through the showroom. And showroom shoppers will be first to see bows, sashes and other accessories Nelli is testing out. 219 N. Second St., Suite 404, Mpls., 651-602-9492

Nelle Nirvana

Monday, October 17th, 2011

It’s a match made in handbag heaven: Nelle Handbags will open an accessories showroom within L’atelier Couture’s gorgeous new North Loop bridal salon. Minneapolis designer Laura Nelli has earned raves for her pretty clutches and bows. Her accessories are sold at bridal salons nationwide and she was even asked to do an exclusive collection for Anthropologie’s But she’s never had a space of her own at home to share her latest designs. For L’atelier owner Amanda Kautt, the partnership is a chance to bring customers one of their favorites. And she has the space in her expansive loft to dedicate a generous corner to Nelle without taking away from her growing assortment of designer gowns. The Nelle showroom will feature more than 100 accessories available in nearly 300 fabrics. Nelle opens at L’atelier on Nov. 2 with the debut of the Nelle 2012 Wedding Collection. 219 N. Second St., Suite 404, Mpls., 651-602-9492
