Mother-daughter architects apply their design smarts to leather goods

Cecilia Zanetta and daughter Veronica Franzese combined their love of fashion and design by founding handbag brand Maria Castelli in 2014. The architects, who trace their roots to Buenos Aires and are now based in New York, recently released a 2017 Fall/Winter collection aimed at chic urbanites. Among the new bags to covet: the 12-inch-wide Byrant Backpack, crafted in New York from Italian leather and Toscana lambskin. $560; mariacastelli.com
