Short Hills resident Leslie Hsu enters the world of fashion-technology with her latest accessory line. 

By Sarah Emily Gilbert

Leslie Hsu knows accessories. The former fabric research and developer for Calvin Klein has had a hand in designing handbags and accessories for the likes of UGG Australia, True Religion Brand Jeans, Jonathan Adler, Zappos.com, and Barnes and Noble Nook, as well as her own eponymous handbag brand.

Always at the helm of the design industry, Hsu’s most recent venture, PUNCHCASE, steps into the realm of fashion-technology. Knowing that few things are worse than a 1% battery charge, her high-quality accessory line offers wallets, clutches, cross body bags, and totes with built-in chargers. Her affordable products come in a myriad of funky prints, styles and colors like the multi-pink lips printed Roxy Power Bag, the blush fringe leather Dalia Power Wallet, and the green gloss camo Lily Power Tote.

Wondering how you survived for so long without these vital accessories? Us too. Luckily, in addition to its website, PUNCHCASE is offered at nearly 200 stockists nationwide, including several in our area. Below is a listing of North Jersey boutiques that carry Hsu’s line, as well as a few of our PUNCHCASE favorites.
