Dallas’ Bag Snob is Having a California Moment: Luxurious New Collection Invokes a Carefree Time

BY // 12.02.16

Picture this: a young Tina Craig zipping through Southern California neighborhoods on a beach cruiser, one hand gripping the handlebar while the other clutches a tricolored Astro-Pop, making sure she returns home before the sun sinks behind the Pacific Ocean.

It’s hard to imagine the Dallas-based fashion phenom as anything other than the fabulous Bag Snob, but it’s the details of Craig’s childhood — the California sunset, seagulls, bike rides — that inspired her new handbag collection, Tina Craig for Gianfranco Lotti, a luxury Italian designer.

“They are beautifully made while still whimsical,” she says of the leather bags, crafted in Florence and available this month exclusively on “I wanted to evoke memories of a carefree time. You could be anything you wanted to be, limited only by your own imagination.”
