Elegance, Edge & Utility for Botkier's Fall 2011 Handbag Collection
Feb 25, 2011 - by Amanda Gabriele
When fashion photographer Monica Botkier launched her handbag line in 2003, she took inspiration from the fast-paced lives of New Yorkers to design a collection that was both luxurious and utilitarian. Eight years later, the Botkier Fall 2011 collection still embodies her philosophy, combining the finest Italian leathers and custom-made hardware with smart design meant to carry your life and last for years. Supple leathers of all colors including purple, leopard and pumpkin are adorned with straps, heavy-duty zippers and hardware resembling bullets and rivets. There is a bag for every occasion and city lifestyle, from the tote with enough room for a laptop, a change of clothes and a makeup case to the cross-body bag that seamlessly goes from a daytime shopping session to a long night of partying. With each piece carrying a personality of its own, you're going to want every bag from this Botkier collection.
