Jeannie Cidel Prepares to Launch a One-of-a-Kind Collection of Luxury Handbags

Jeannie Cidel Prepares to Launch a One-of-a-Kind Collection of Luxury Handbags

The J Cidel Collection is changing the game when it comes to luxury handbags. Wanting more than just designing a handbag out of fine materials, Jeannie Cidel created walking pieces of art.

PR Newswire

MIAMI, June 30, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- Motivated by the economic crisis in the late 2000s, the J Cidel Collection was created in Jeannie Cidel's living room after losing her job in 2009 as a science teacher. The Miami, Florida, native, born to Haitian immigrants, rediscovered her passion for art and fashion, as she always had a love for vibrant colors and exquisite patterns, and began sewing clutch bags by hand using textiles from local suppliers.

Jeannie's bags were a hit but she demanded more for the J Cidel Collection. She traveled to different parts of the world in search of unique and exclusive artwork and was amazed by the creations of world-renowned artists Roberto Alborghetti, Darryll Schiff, Fu Wenjun, and others. She sought out the finest materials and design concepts used by leaders in the handbag industry. Her travels and affinity for high-end fashion landed her in Italy, one of the world's most recognized destinations for fine materials, exquisite fashion design, superb craftsmanship, and quality production.

The realization of the collection can only be described as "walking pieces of art" as they are not just handbags. It's about a cultural experience of fine art and exquisite fashion coming together and not just the wearing of an accessory. They're unexpected, unrestricted, and unapologetic. When Jeannie ventured on this journey, she wanted to design handbags that were bold, vibrant, unique, colorful, abstract, sexy, edgy, trendy, and elegant. She wanted to design handbags that were a representation of these confessions and the reason why the bags will be labeled as such.

"I live my life with only one quote made by Denis Diderot: 'Only passions, great passions, can elevate the soul to great things,'" said Jeannie Cidel, founder and creator of the J Cidel Collection. "I couldn't be more excited about this venture and I hope everyone enjoys the bags as much as I've enjoyed creating them." 

However, the J Cidel Collection is more than just about designing luxury handbags; it's about Jeannie finding inspiration in other entrepreneurs who traveled a similar journey and became philanthropists. She saw a need in her community and was inspired to motivate young adults to become entrepreneurs by using their talents to achieve great things and giving back to those in need.

In addition to designing trendy and vibrant walking art pieces, Jeannie plans to create a foundation and collaborate with high schools in urban communities to bring awareness to entrepreneurship. Ultimately, the foundation will provide college scholarships to high school students, affording them the opportunity to live out their dreams.

Due to the impacts of COVID19, the J Cidel Collection is expected to launch in early 2021.
