Whether spotted on the red carpet gracing the shoulder of a starlet, or on the street paired with jeans and an oversized tee, 442 McAdam handbags are scene-stealers! Recognized by their metal logo plate, original silhouettes, and mix of equestrian and vintage detailing, 442 McAdam bags continue to draw a loyal following. Owners of 442 include Taylor Swift, Mena Suvari, Jeanne Beker, Sarah Taylor, Katy Perry, Leighton Meester, Fefe Dobson, Tanya Kim, and other beauties.
442 bags are engineered right here in Canada with a focus on durable construction, a balance of sexiness and nostalgia, but with a sharp eye for the practical requirements of our customers.

Complete with quality metals, zippered closures and pockets for inner organization, as well as a beautiful dust bag.
442 McAdam bags embody a tonal fusion of bohemian regality - no doubt a unique and desired contribution from the vision of designer Sarah Shell.
Designer Sarah Shell returned to her roots in Canada after spending several years in New York’s fashion industry. After earning her degree in Biology at McGill University, Sarah attended Parsons School of Design where she graduated with a degree in Fashion Design. While in New York, Sarah designed for Club Monaco, and then focused on buying/merchandizing at Gucci North America. It was here that she gained her appreciation for well-made luxury bags. During this time, Sarah also worked directly with designers such as Catherine Malandrino, Yigal Azrouel, and BCBG Max Azria, for a number of seasons of New York Fashion Week shows.
