Review: HUNG on U Barney's Exclusive Handbag

A few months ago I discovered the sensational line of handbags from HUNG on U. I was immediately drawn to them because of their unique design and shape, the stunning materials they are rendered in, and how they comfortably conform to your body to make them effortless to carry! It the best of where style, functionality and individuality meet! The generous folks over at Barney's hosted a promotion on Twitter and I became lucky enough to be gifted one of these fabulous handbags. A very special thank you to Barney's NY and HUNG on U for this most exceptional handbag. There are no words to express how incredibly amazing it is.

Introduction to Hung on U

Supermodel Patti Hansen and her longtime friend, producer/manager Molly Madden, loved their bags from when they lived their unbridled lifestyles during the studio 54 era in New York. Their lives and careers moved on and it wasn’t until watching Patti’s daughters, Alexandra and Theodora, regularly exploring Patti’s closet for these great bags that Patti and Molly remembered how much they loved these fabulous bags. They took the idea of re-launching these bags to designer Debi Koppel, the woman behind DKP Designs, and the three of them combined their talents to give these 80’s inspired bags new life.

Our Identity

The Hung on U brand celebrates the unbridled spirit of artistic expression fused with authentic rock’n roll chic. A true Hung on U character is confidently unique, authors their own style, and loves life’s journey, while ever so familiar with the path less traveled.

Patti Hansen – The Face of The Brand

The Hung on U Brand strives to emulate Patti’s incredible character. She’s a model, a mom, married to Keith Richards of The Rolling Stones and a cancer survivor. She embarked upon a modeling career at 16 after being found by Wilhelmina and quickly blossomed into a world renowned model featured monthly in Glamour and Vogue, featured on 15 Vogue covers. Her career in modeling is rivaled by few, and her 30-year marriage with rock legend Keith Richards is a true testament to love, unparalleled by any other rock covenant.


I was sent the magnificent Black Sheepskin Leather Bag with Whipstiching along the edges of the handbag, so cool! The leather is super soft and luxurious to touch and the handbag is meticulously constructed, to perfection! If you want an ultra hip new handbag to give your look that urban chic flair, a handbag that will add a little spice to your daily look, then you really should head on over to the HUNG on U Website to see their entire collection of really dynamic designs by CLICKING HERE.

I want to share with you the details about my distinctive Barney's NY HUNG on U Bag:

Price: $480


Beautiful black sheepskin leather bag with hand whipstitch trimming. Cotton twill lining with inside inner zipper pocket and detachable inner black sheepskin leather bag that can also be used by itself, metal zippers. This is a medium size bag.


Inside Detachable bag: 7” L x 4”H

Adjustable knot shoulder strap for the perfect fit for everyone.


This is one of of the most innovative handbags that I have ever had the pleasure of owning. It is versatile in that it pairs perfectly with all of my really casual daily outfits, but it also transforms nicely into a handbag that will work well with my more dressier, evening clothes, even my favorite black dress! It is the absolute perfect size for me too! It is considered medium size, but large enough that it can house all that I typically want to carry around with me, that includes everything from hair brush and makeup, ipod, and iphone! I even have room for a water bottle and little munchies, how excellent is that?!

And, did I mention that this Barney exclusive bag has been autographed by the fabulous lady herself Patti Hansen!! Yes, in pretty silver marker she has put her mark on the inside of my bag!! I was so thrilled when I discovered that extra bonus element to my bag. In addition, a sleek matching black sheepskin wallet is attached to the inside of the bag so I can easily store it in my bag safely without worrying about it falling out of my handbag! It has a leash attached to it so you can pull it out just enough to access your money, credit cards and so on, but it is securely stowed away in your purse, I think this is pretty genius too! Another reason to covet this very fine bag.

I cannot express enough how divine I feel this handbag is, from it's splendid design, with so much attention to detail in every style element, to it's comfort in carrying, whether you prefer to bring to the front of your body, or swing it around to hang from your back, you will come to adore all that embodies this fascinating design from the folks at HUNG on U.

This concludes my review.
