Jill Milan Sells New Line of Vegan Handbags in SF

Cruelty-free fashionistas can get a preview of Jill Milan’s new collection of Italian, handcrafted products at San Francisco’s Westfield Mall.

Since May 24, the veg-friendly fashion line Jill Milan has been selling its Italian handbags from its upcoming fall/winter, 2013-2014 collections at a pop-up shop in San Francisco’s Westfield Mall. Jill Milan products have been favored by some of Hollywood’s fashion-forward thinkers, such as Anne Hathaway and Jennifer Lawrence, who have sported the accessory line at film premieres and awards ceremonies. Milan’s vegan proclivities are not just for show—part of the company’s proceeds go to organizations that take in and care for retired racehorses who are at risk of being euthanized.
