What’s in your Botkier bag?

Planet Botkier August 03, 2012

Almost every busy girl carries her daily essentials in her favorite bag. These essentials are what you depend on to get you through the day and night! At the Botkier office, we asked Sophie what she carries in her favorite Valentina shoulder in teal.

1. Canon Rebel camera: “I’m a photographer so I can’t imagine going anywhere without my camera. I mostly shoot street photography but sometimes when I catch someone in a great outfit, I’ll snap that too.”

2. Ray Ban Sunglasses: “I can’t go anywhere without my favorite pair of sunglasses, even if it’s a cloudy day.”

3. Orbit spearmint gum: “My friends make fun of me but I’ll chew a whole pack of gum a day.”

4. Kodak Film: “I usually shoot with my digital camera but there are some occasions where I want to capture moments in film. Even though you’re not getting the instant gratification of seeing your image right away, it’s a treat to see your image after some time has passed.”

5. iPhone: “My iPhone keeps me connected to my world when I’m on the go. I definitely use instagram the most. I love being able to see what others see throughout their day, it’s a very creative way to stay connected!”

6. Wallet: “I bought this wallet at Anthropologie a while back. It’s the perfect size for me and I love the design.”

7. Book: “I’m currently reading Coco Chanel, The Legend and the Life. She has always been one of my idols and the story of her life is fascinating.”

8. Perfume: “I have been wearing the same perfume for over 10 years, Chance by Chanel.”

9. Lipstick: “My makeup must-have is always lipstick. Even if I’m not wearing any other makeup, a little lipstick goes a long way. My current favorites are Rosy Nude and Candy Apple by Revlon.”

10. Shimmer: “I usually wear Moon Beam by Benefit on my cheekbones before I go out at night. I love it because it gives your face a subtle glow and almost acts as blush.”

Botkier Celebrates Street Style Spring Giveaway

Planet Botkier March 24, 2011

What better way to honor Bill Cunningham, the original street-style photographer and fellow New Yorker, than to offer one of our loyal fans the chance to get their “street-style” on?

Beginning Thursday March 24th, 2011 we’ll be offering one lucky Botkier fan the chance to win a Spring 2011 Botkier bag and to be featured in a street style shoot by Monica Botkier.

Also one lucky winner will win two tickets to see “Bill Cunningham New York” at the Film Forum here in New York City, to be announced Saturday, March 26th, 2011.

We love seeing Botkier street style and we’re constantly inspired by some of our favorite bloggers, as seen above (Aimee Song and Carolina Engeman).

Essentially, that’s how Botkier began – a girl, with her camera, and a bag.

Become a fan on Facebook, follow us on Twitter or visit our Nolita Boutique to enter – the winner will be chosen on Friday, April 1st, 2011.


About the film:

“We all get dressed for Bill,” says Vogue editrix Anna Wintour.

The “Bill” in question is 80+ New York Times photographer Bill Cunningham. For decades, this Schwinn-riding cultural anthropologist has been obsessively and inventively chronicling fashion trends and high society charity soirées for the Times Style section in his columns “On the Street” and “Evening Hours.” Documenting uptown fixtures (Wintour, Tom Wolfe, Brooke Astor, David Rockefeller—who all appear in the film out of their love for Bill), downtown eccentrics and everyone in between, Cunningham’s enormous body of work is more reliable than any catwalk as an expression of time, place and individual flair. In turn, Bill Cunningham New York is a delicate, funny and often poignant portrait of a dedicated artist whose only wealth is his own humanity and unassuming grace.
