All About EDEN – Holiday Resort 2011

Planet Botkier October 27, 2011

The Holiday Resort season always comes as a bright spot as Fall comes to an end and winter sets in. We start dreaming about a fabulous getaway somewhere chic and HOT! This season for the holidays Botkier has introduced bright statement bags that will accessorize any trip and remind you that winter will eventually give way to warmer weather…

The above trio of EDEN satchels is the best example of color blocking anyone can dream of. Chic and structured with unique hardware and bright clever color combinations to make any outfit pop!

It’s always great for us to see how the cool girls wear our bags. Above here is Natalie Suarez of Natalie Off Duty followed by our girl Aimee Song of Song of Style and Wendy Lam of Nitrolicious out and about in NYC. Their styles are all so different and they each make EDEN their own, a designers dream come true!

These images are from our inspiration board for Holiday Resort 2011. Photographed by Andrew Yee for a colorblocking story in  How to Spend It Magazine. Color blocking is a huge theme this year and continues as a strong trend into 2012. Love the red jacket above!

The photo above is a huge inspiration for me, I have it tacked up in my office. It’s from one of my favorite coffee table books – Hotel Il Pellicano, “Swimmers and Sailors”, Robert Scio (photographer), published by Rizzoli New York. I want to go back in time when I look at it!

This is a photograph I took myself while on holiday in Portugal. It was so beautiful there, the brightest blues in all imaginable hues. You can literally feel the sun on the kids backs… The family vacation, moments that pass too quickly.

Speaking of, this is a very personal moment for me on a family vacation at the age of 4 with my aunt in Miami. Talk about on trend, my bathing suit back then was right on! Good memories live in bright color.  xoxo Monica
