This brand new Gretchen highlight uses high quality double-face leather that is usable from both sides and lighter as it doesn’t need lining. To let the material speak for itself this tote is designed very openly. You can either carry it elegantly in the crook of your arm or use the detachable shoulder strap to carry it as a cross-over. Inside this Gretchen you find one inside pocket on each side for small items that easily get lost. To protect the inside this tote is completely closable with a zipper without hiding the usage of this special leather. Exquisite geometric forms along with two decent leather spirals at the front make the Opal Tote an edgy and avant-garde design item that will turn heads without effort.
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.
