The Edit: 3 Must-Have Pieces by Accessories Brand EDAS
In 2013, New York-based designer Sade Mims founded EDAS (her first name backwards) to create chic and staple accessories with a focus on sustainability for the everyday woman. Introduced to accessories by her grandmother’s handbags, jewelry and hats, Mims was taken by the way small accent pieces could add the perfect finishing touch to a look.
Her aesthetic borrows from classic silhouettes and artful motifs that evoke nostalgia for past eras, seen in the signature Yshaia bag, which is reinvented season after season with new shades and sizes.
Along with sleek leather bags, Mims designs also crafts eclectic jewelry and hats in her Brooklyn studio and showroom, with the intention of making every woman feel beautiful, one accessory at a time. We’ve selected three of her handbag designs to add to your wardrobe, below.
The Yshaia Bag
EDAS bags are characterized by rich colors and classic shapes, crafted from supple leather. When you choose the Yshaia style, which is available in olive or pine-green hues, you know you’re getting a forever bag you’ll return to every season.
The Mini Belt Bag
The Mini Belt Bag is the perfect item that merges function and fashion. Made from cowhide leather with a cotton lining, it is versatile with an adjustable strap a detachable wallet, and a bag that can also be carried with its beaded top handle.
The Yshaia Mini Bag
EDAS has scaled down its classic Yshaia bag to a mini size that will fit just your essentials. It’s made from cowhide leather in a flax yellow hue that will add a welcome pop of color to muted outfits. It’s detailed with the signature oversized buckle and wide strap.
