THE FINE DETAILS:
Handcrafted in Anya Sushko’s Studio in London
About Designer: Anya Sushko specialises in luxury as well as bespoke handbags, always handcrafted in London. The brand is founded by former Alexander McQueen couture assistant and Central St Martin's graduate Anna Sushko, who is an expert in bespoke accessories. Keeping true to her brand’s ethos, Anna is involved in the entire creation process – from idea conception to the last finishing touches of every bag.
Each one of Anya Sushko’s handbags is handcrafted in her London studio, using the finest materials and resulting in an unmatched attention to detail. The handbags stand out with their quality, striking shapes and carefully placed details, designed to be as practical as they are beautiful. You can tell an Anya Sushko handbag by not only seeing it but by feeling its detail too.
Born in Riga, Latvia, when it was still part of the USSR, Anya’s childhood was marked by the typical Soviet challenges – no access to foreign goods, very limited exposure for Western culture compensated by vigorous involvement in classical Russian arts such as ballet, gymnastics and piano. From an early age, Anya learned how to make the beautiful things she couldn’t buy herself, with the encouragement of her mother, who taught her that you get what you work for.
Her creative flair led her to study architecture and then interior design. Later, her talent was spotted by the prestigious Central Saint Martins’s College of Art and Design in London where she graduated, followed by an accessories degree at the London College of Fashion.
After university, Anya furthered her skills at Alexander McQueen's studio in London, where she assisted in making not one but two of the couture collections presented during Paris Fashion Week. Lead by her enormous passion for handcrafted accessories, she later turned her hand to her own line of luxury handbags, handmade in an atelier in London.
This is a story of true passion for bags, the study and evolution of strong bold designs developed for the needs of a modern woman who seeks quality, style, elegance, modernity, endurance. Anya Sushko’s bags offer a classically simple design with a twist. The designs are easy to wear and incredibly practical and functional. Designed and handmade in London from the finest Italian leathers and with hand stitched finish, the Anya Sushko bags will please and impress even the most discerning customer and will stand the test of time.
“It is important that my handbags are not only unique and special, but also practical. I design for women with busy & demanding lives, to whom elegance is important”, adds Anya . “Luxury has to bring comfort & elegance into everyday life too. ”
