ABOUT US

SISTER EPIC is a conceptual handbag brand designed for functional life + the intentional collector. Designing and bringing art to life through beautifully crafted handbags, our made-to-order pieces are constructed with perfection in Pittsburgh, PA. We believe personal style is a reflection of this inner beauty and our appreciation for it -- in all shapes and forms - starts from this foundation. Our existence is dedicated to this poetic, everyday beauty. This inspiration and a balanced influence of geometry, minimalism and captivating textures are integrated into our limited release capsule collections. We don’t believe in seasons, therefore our pieces are released on an ongoing basis throughout the year. Our materials are hand selected and sourced from the most ethical partners from around the world.

THE BABE BEHIND THE BAGS

Adrienne Guariglia is the principal designer and founder of SISTER EPIC. The Chicago-native received her BFA from The School of The Art Institute of Chicago. Her completion of the highly-esteemed Fashion Program instilled in her a balanced understanding of conceptual design and technical garment construction. It was within the production of her final collection that her love of working with non-traditional textures & silhouettes was discovered. ‍After many years spent in the corporate world of retail display design and visual merchandising, Guariglia felt the need to redirect her creative energy into a project of her own. Giving in to the pull toward change, she followed her heart and moved to Pittsburgh. There, in December of 2018, she launched SISTER EPIC. Guariglia’s love of minimalist lines, eye-catching textures, rich colors and timeless designs are elements woven through every SISTER EPIC piece. Her designs are meant to amplify personal style without compromising functionality.

OUR COMMITMENT

We’re about that slow life. Not just because we put attention into every detail, but because spending as much time necessary to offer quality pieces is more important to us than quantity. All of our products are made-to-order and new designs are released per capsule, not per season. By slowing down and not abiding by the rules of fashion seasonality, we are better able to ideate and create meaningful, quality products that we stand by.
