as i announced on friday, this week’s “a bag a week" is sponsored by a designer who is near and dear to my heart: katherine kwei. for those of you unfamiliar with katherine, she began her career in fashion working in the public relations department of louis vuitton. in 2002, she left to pursue a masters at the london college of fashion, then moved to new york in 2006 and took part in an internship with zac posen. less than one year later, she debuted her first handbag collection.
in the detail shots above, you can clearly see the chinese “eternity” knots, which have become a defining feature on many of kwei’s styles. this particular bag, the "joyce" messenger in “mocha”, retails for $585. it feels like butter.
check back on wednesday to see how i wore this bag as well as what’s inside it.
