Fashion’s Night Out turned out to be a fabulous night in for us down at our NoLIta boutique. We hosted a DIY party where Botkier Babes came down to decorate their very own eco friendly totes with Swarovski crystals, iron-ons, leather, studs and more! All proceeds from the sale of the totes went to benefit Oxfam.

Nadia of FrouFrouu with her cool and minimalist DIY design, love!
Great example of the iron-on details we had. This one is inspired by the Flint group for Fall.
Beautiful work ladies!

Although it’s only January, we’re proud to say one of our goals for 2010 has been checked off the list: our flagship store opened on January 11th! After searching for the perfect location and space, we opened a boutique in New York’s chic NoLIta district. A few of our favorite neighbors thus far: Cafe Gitane for the impeccable avocado toast, Le Labo and their exquisite collection of perfumes, and McNally Jackson Books, a suitable spot for a good read. You’re invited to visit our NoLIta residence at 246 Mott (At Prince St.)
The space was designed in a collaboration between Monica and interior designer Valerie Pasquiou to exude a unique and edgy downtown sophistication. Together they chose a palette of warm grays, copper infused purples, sexy blacks and custom metallic accents to create a modern luxe atmosphere. Our new home will spotlight one of a kind collectors items (Hello, Snakeskin Bianca!) and will be the perfect spot to get to know the bags in person.
