Joy Gryson

From: Korea; raised in New York.
Work history: Former director of accessories design and development for Marc Jacobs. She started her own line last fall with buttery-soft Italian leather bags and is now branching out to shoes and boots this fall.
The feeling: A balance of subtle and urban-practical stomp; high-heeled pumps with lug soles, soft flat boots ornamented with one slim brass zipper, all in dark, versatile, dirt-proof colors.
Where to get them: Plaza Too (starting in August), 2231 Broadway, nr. W. 80th St.; 212-362-6871.
