The Lyra Clutch celebrates the design-motto ‘less is more’, which embodies Gretchen’s idea of aesthetic design. The sleek rectangular shape of the body contains an easy and architectural allure that is timelessly modern. Diagonally shaped, the cover flap is accentuated by the profile element which sits underneath the fine waxed calf leather. This delicate detail adds that “certain something" and provides the Lyra Clutch with a unique message.
About Designer: Gretchen stands for leather accessories with a distinctly modern design language. Embracing a holistic concept, the sculptural aesthetics of the creations focuses on avant-garde shapes and precise cuts. Elaborate details such as hand-applied profiling s or architecturally shaped bottom constructions fuse with the softer body and create a new vision of a handbag.
Gretchen designer Anne-Christin Schmitt claims that „Design is only half of the equation. The other half is the material itself.“ Balanced material combinations of finest glazed and waxed calf leathers are therefore typical elements of the distinguished Gretchen style. The natural texture of these leathers exudes timeless luxury and makes the colorful collections vibrate vividly. The thoughtful balance between artistically constructed elements and wearable accessories aims to inspire the independent spirit of our days.
Headed by the designer Anne-Christin Schmitt and the co-founder Michael Georg Schmitt, Berlin-based Gretchen challenges the conventional and gives way to new concepts.
