The basis of ela, a Canadian handbag and accessories brand co-founded by husband and wife team Ela and Martin Aldorsson, is the idea of humble luxury, where refined and sophisticated silhouettes strive to showcase, rather than upstage, the wearer. From subtle asymmetry to luxe hardware and leather, every design element is infused with a high level of craftsmanship, materials and a signature aesthetic. All ela handbags and leather goods are crafted in Spain using premium leather and hardware.
The brand received early recognition and success with its signature silhouette called the M.I.L.C.K clutch (an acronym for a woman’s required cargo: money / identification / lipstick / cell / keys.) ela is stocked in specialty stores and retailers in North America and Asia such as Saks Fifth Avenue, Harvey Nichols, Holt Renfrew and Shopbop.com. The brand has also gained a celebrity fan base that incudes; Gwyneth Paltrow, Taylor Swift, Keira Knightly, Jessica Alba, Jordana Brewster, Malin Akerman and Florence Welch.
Now in its third season of partnership, ela had collaborated with Club Monaco on an exclusive collection that can be found all over the world including NYC, Hong Kong, Singapore, London and Toronto.
