The iconic Cotton Club on San Felipe quietly changed hands a year ago, but new owners John Maguire and Jennifer Cunningham — who met at Tootsies, where they were both buyers — are turning the volume up with some serious style. Having picked up a number of exclusive brands, including Sarah Pacini sportswear from Italy and Japanese shoe brand Udot, the pair is perhaps most excited by a line of handpainted bags called New Vintage. The company restores Louis Vuitton purses — mostly from the 1980s — and custom paints various colorful and whimsical designs onto the leather.  Browse the bags and commission your own, exclusively at Cotton Club. 3941 San Felipe St., 713.522.9101
