OOAK Overview

“One of a Kind” bags, or OOAK for short, are sample or prototype pieces created by Dooney & Bourke but were never released or mass-produced. OOAK’s are typically used by the bag designer at Dooney & Bourke to pitch their concept or as a sample for a new collection before creating them for the general public.

Since they are so rare, OOAK bags are not available for sale except through secondary marketplaces, like eBay.

Occasionally, collectors will come across Disney Dooney and Bourke OOAK bags that have been signed by Ian Ray. Ian Ray is the Creative Director for Dooney and Bourke and has made appearances at Disney by Dooney & Bourke trunk shows in the past, where he was available to sign purchases and meet fans.
