Out of Officina

Inspired by her grandfather's vintage binocular cases, the SMU grad behind Officina del Poggio has updated the timeless, functional style.

If shopping were a sport, you'd be the safari guide. 

It's all about the thrill of the find - get a closer look at the spring bag you'll soon be coveting. SMU alum Allison Hoeltzel, pictured center in Milan where she lives, is the creator of Officina del Poggio, her line of super-luxe leather goods inspired by her grandfather's collection of vintage binocular cases. Available locally and also carried by big-deal retailers like Moda Operandi and Goop's brick-and-mortar in L.A., her newest collection of purses and totes marries metallics, exotic skins and silk tassels with the functionality of the timeless case.

When it comes to fashion, you're a hunter and a gatherer.
